Tribute to those who died young

Plans have been discussed for a memorial in Thame, Oxfordshire, to honour young people who have died.

A resident came up with the idea after being impressed by a long standing tribute to Chloe Owens, 14, killed in a road accident in September 2005.

A meeting has been held at Thame Town Hall to discuss what should be built.

Town Councillor Mike Dyer said any memorial would be a "place of reflection or remembrance" dedicated to the young people who have died.

"We are hoping to gauge the level of public support, to get some ideas, and then to form a working party to take it forward," he added.

The town council has agreed that a triangular piece of land on the end of the Memorial Gardens could be used.

It is hoped that the tribute could be approved within the next six months.
