The family of a Wandsworth teenager found dead in the Malaysian jungle are demanding answers after authorities said there would not be an inquest into her death.

15-year-old Nora Quoirin, who attended St Bede's Catholic Church in Clapham Park, was found dead days after going missing in Malaysia last August.

Her body was found 1.6 miles from a holiday resort where she and her family were staying in Dusun, Malaysia, last summer.

Nora's French-Irish parents Sebastien and Meabh Quoirin have called for further answers from the relevant authorities since her body was recovered.

Malaysian authorities classified Nora's death as "no further action" (NFA), according to charity the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is supporting the London teenager's family.

Inquests are regularly held in the UK into the death of someone found to have died from something other than natural causes.

The Quoirins said an initial post-mortem examination found Nora died from gastro-intestinal bleeding and an ulcer, likely brought on by starvation and/or stress, but that the full findings had yet to be presented.

"We cannot believe, nor understand why, any modern economy would label such a harrowing and mysterious case NFA without full process and the total refusal to communicate with us is both insulting and unfathomable," a statement from the parents said.

"The AGC's (Malaysian Attorney General's Chambers) decision prevents justice being done.

"As we have stressed from the beginning of this case, it is crucial to understand how Nora came to be found where she was.

"As a vulnerable child, with significant physical and mental challenges, we strongly refute any conclusion that Nora was alone for the entire duration of her disappearance.

"We have repeatedly asked the police to clarify answers to our questions in this regard - and we have been repeatedly ignored.

"This stands in stark contrast with the promise of transparency that we received from the deputy prime minister and other prominent officials whom we met in Malaysia," they added.

Meanwhile Matt Searle, chief executive of the Lucie Blackman Trust, accused Malaysian authorities of "effectively closing down" the case.

He said: "The idea that Nora went off, on her own, seems incredibly unlikely.

"This family need answers and at least deserve an investigation to the greatest lengths available.

"We are urgently seeking answers from various authorities - Nora's death needs to be explained."

The parents continue to receive support from Irish Department of Foreign Affairs.

A statement published by the Irish governmental department said:

"The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade continues to provide ongoing consular assistance in this case.

"In line with department policy, we will not be commenting further."
