Students from Launceston College, the school where the murdered teenager Caroline Dickinson was a pupil, have been issued with personal attack alarms for the school's first residential field trip since her brutal sex killing in the French village of Pleines Fougeres in July.

Caroline, 13, had been sleeping between some bunk beds with four other girl students when an intruder raped and suffocated her in the room in the youth hostel. French police are still hunting her killer.

The alarms have been issued to 11 pupils and a teacher from the school who are on a week's A-level geography trip at an unnamed youth hostel in the UK.
