Councillor Julie Dore, Leader of Sheffield City Council said:

“Shukri Abdi was a young girl with a bright future and her death is an awful tragedy. I want to send a message of sympathy to Shukri’s family, and in particular, the Somali community who are fighting for an inquiry.

“Racism and bullying is not tolerated, nor acceptable in our communities and in our schools. For anyone who experiences or witnesses this behaviour, please report it to the police. Sheffield stands with you.”
