Tribute to teenager who died on railway – Weymouth

The family of a teenage girl who died in Weymouth yesterday (23 March) have paid tribute to her.

In a statement, the family of Roxy Phillips said:

“As a family we are devastated for the loss of our daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter and cousin, Roxy Phillips. Roxy was a strong willed young woman, an animal lover who loved horses especially her own horse Bradley. 
Roxy was loved and adored by her friends, we as a family have felt this love through the tributes and kind messages we have received. 

“We would like to raise awareness of the dangers of the railway tracks, unknown to most that the 3rd rail is live 24 hours a day all year round. This was a tragic accident that we as a family will never be able to overcome.

“We will always love and miss you, our beautiful Roxy.”

Officers were called to the lines in Weymouth yesterday morning at 2.25am. Paramedics also attended but sadly Roxy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries into her death are continuing.
