Wembley teen dies after nightclub crush which killed Neasden woman
Stampede claims its second victim
A Wembley teenager has died following a nightclub stampede in Northampton that also claimed the life of a Neasden woman.
Laurene Danielle Jackson, 19, died in hospital yesterday (Sunday) after she was critically injured in the crush in Lava & Ignite nightclub on October 19.
Nabila Nanfuka, 22, of Yeats Close, died in the stampede.
The leisure and tourism student at Northampton University was one of many party-goers at the Wickedest Wickedest event, many of whom had travelled to the venue from out of town.
Eyewitnesses described revellers rushing for the exits following an announcement that coaches were leaving to take them home.
A 21-year-old woman who was seriously injured has since been discharged from hospital.
