The children were heard discussing the body as having ‘grey eyes’.
A resident told Belfast Live: ‘I heard them say, I thought it was, ”it’s definitely dead, I can see the eyes”, but now I’m thinking it was, ”it’s definitely a head” and I heard it wrong.
‘The smaller one was kneeling down and he was showing the other two, then they got into a bit of a panic and they were talking about the eyes were grey, something to do with the eyes, and then the next minute the bus was coming up and they all ran over and jumped on the bus.’
