ABOUT 200 people took part in a vigil to remember Dawlish Ukrainian teenager Albina Yevko last night.

The vigil took place on the Lawn in Dawlish and was attended by a number of her friend and fellow students from Dawlish College and its head teacher Sam Banks. 

A Go Fund Me page has also been set up to help Albina’s mother and family and to contribute to her funeral costs. 

It has raised £1,400 so far. 

The vigil was hosted by Rosie Dawson, a town councillor, who had been the sponsor for Albina and her mother when they came to Dawlish as refugees from the war in Ukraine. 

Albina was found unconscious on Dawlish beach and died later in hospital. 

Her death is not being treated as suspicious by police.

In a statement just issued by the police Detective Inspector Becky Davies said: ‘Following police inquiries undertaken throughout the Dawlish area, including CCTV trawls, review of Albina’s phone and a forensic post mortem; investigative officers can confirm that there was no third party involvement and that the death of Albina Yevko is not suspicious.’
