Families of Tilly Seccombe and Harry Purcell speak of their unbearable loss a year after the crash that killed three Chipping Campden School teenagers

Today, Sunday April 21, marks one year since three families lost their children in a car crash on the Chipping Campden Road near Stretton-on-Fosse.

The families of Harry Purcell, 17, and Tilly Seccombe, 16, shared a photo and some thoughts with the Herald ahead of the painful anniversary.

Tilly’s family said: ‘On the most difficult birthdays, not a day goes by without feeling the unbearable loss of Tilly. We miss her radiant personality, her love and laughter and we will forever.”

Harry’s family said: “Harry fills a big part of every day. Our lives now include the many fun, happy memories we had together as a family. He was so beautiful, kind and funny and we feel so blessed to have shared his life.

“Our sadness and pain do not become lighter a year later. Our sadness and pain deepen and reflect the love we will always have for our precious boy. The love, compassion and support of our wonderful friends and family are helping us make this terrible journey without Harry.”

The family of 16-year-old Frank Wormald has previously asked for privacy.
