Death girl 'inhaled an aerosol'

Naomi Thomson
Schoolgirl Naomi Thomson died in Fraserburgh in 2006

A teenager who died after a drinking session at a house in Fraserburgh also inhaled an aerosol through a towel, a court has heard.

Naomi Thomson, 14, was described as "jumping about and really hyper".

Christine Stewart, 49, and Amanda Williamson, 36, deny providing Naomi and two other teenagers with alcohol and not supervising them properly.

Fraserburgh Academy pupil Naomi was found dead at a house in the town's Marconi Terrace in November 2006.

One of the girls, Kayleigh Stewart, now 16, told the second day of the trial at Peterhead Sheriff Court they had drunk four bottles of alcopops at Amanda Williamson's house.

She said Naomi was drunk, singing karaoke, and jumping about. She said she also inhaled aerosol in a bathroom.

Started crying

After returning to Christine Stewart's house after midnight, the three had another half glass of white wine each, in Kayleigh Stewart's bedroom.

Ms Stewart said she shared her bed with Naomi, but Naomi kept falling out, and lying on the floor moaning.

Ms Stewart said Naomi said she had already taken a Ritalin for ADHD.

She said Naomi had started crying because she was unhappy with her relationship with her parents.

She said she confided in Christine Stewart and wished that she was her mother. She said Christine Stewart kissed her on the head and left the bedroom.

Relatives of Fraserburgh Academy pupil Naomi said at the time of her death that they were "devastated" by the loss of an "extremely kind-hearted person".

The trial continues.
