Detectives say a number of teenagers may have been taking drugs or drinking that night but that’s not their focus.

Supt Andrew Watters, who is leading the investigation, explained: "That is not the primary concern or the primary focus of this investigation.

"The primary focus of this investigation is to establish for Cameron's family the truth as to what happened to Cameron."
