Police investigate sudden death of schoolgirl, 15, who was dead, fear she have taken drugs

A teenage girl has died in a suspected drugs overdose.
Dione Melville, 15, could not be saved when paramedics went to a house in response to an early morning call.
Two of the schoolgirl’s friends, also 15, were taken to hospital but are not thought to have required medical treatment.
Dione was pronounced dead shortly after ambulance staff arrived at the property in East Calder, West Lothian, on Sunday.
Police are understood to be investigating whether or not she had taken drugs.
Police Scotland have arrested a 15-year-old boy in the same area and charged him with supplying illegal drugs.
Dione, who was only a few months away from leaving school and wanted to train as a hairdresser, had made numerous references to drug use on social media, posting messages from other people mentioning ecstasy and cocaine.
However, the cause of her death will not be certain until a post-mortem examination is performed
Her two friends were admitted to St John’s Hospital in Livingston as a precaution but are said to have suffered no ill effects.
The death of the teenager, believed to have been at an address in Langton Avenue, East Calder, is being treated as unexplained and a report has gone to the procurator fiscal.
Dione’s parents, Lesley Jervis Melville and Michael Melville, were too upset to speak last night but the acting head of West Calder High School paid tribute to her.
