There were the friends who dared her to run across the dual carriageway, who fired her up with their hysterical goading.

There were the friends with the twitchy thumbs, their phones held out, ready to film her as she darted through the traffic.

And there were the friends who grabbed her arms as she slid over the wall, and pulled her back.
