“In the Hexham community we have a very low crime rate, generally, it’s a community that looks after one another, we were awarded the happiest place to live in Great Britain last year.

“It’s a very warm and loving community so for a tragedy such as this to happen, we always find it much more difficult and it’s knocked everyone for six.

“To happen to such a young person and the alleged perpetrator to be a young person, in the high street at 5pm, is just shocking, everyone is just shocked and struggling to come to terms with it, it will ruin so many lives.”

Chief Superintendent Sam Rennison told reporters that it is a “devastating time for the families of these young people, and what is really important is that we continue to provide that specialist support and advice from our specially trained officers to make sure that they get through the coming days, weeks, and months,” She continued by expressing gratitude to the general public for its assistance, “especially those who tried to provide assistance to the injured boy and girl at the scene.”

According to the police chief, it is being treated as an isolated incident.

“The actions of those residents in the town centre yesterday just shows how tight and supportive the community are In times of tragedy.

We will continue to work with you and we will be visible to offer that reassurance over the coming days.”
