A POPULAR teenager who collapsed in a Clitheroe street on Monday has died.

Fourteen-year-old Daniel Robinson, who was a pupil at Bowland High School, was on his way to the doctors, accompanied by his mother, Joanne, when he collapsed in Wellgate, Clitheroe. The incident happened around 6 p.m. on Monday and he was rushed to Royal Blackburn Hospital where his condition was described as “critical, but stable” however, he died yesterday.

As news of his death has spread, tributes have been pouring in. Mr Stephen Cox, headteacher at Bowland High said: “The whole school is in shock over losing such a popular member of the school community.

“All of our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Daniel was nearing the end of Year 9 and had matured into a sensible young person. He was well respected by other pupils and responded well to challenges. “He showed enormous determination and strength of character, which was very evident on an outdoor pursuits week to Cumbria last year. Bowland is a tight-knit community, where pupils are very close to each other and the loss of Daniel has touched the school to its bones. The school will be holding a special assembly in remembrance of Daniel. We will all miss him deeply.”

Investigations into the cause of death are ongoing.
