One Direction has paid tribute to a teenager after she died suddenly from a suspected heart attack.

Magdalena Szablinska was taken ill on Tuesday while waiting for a bus to take her home from St Mark's Catholic School in Hounslow. The 16-year-old was rushed to the West Middlesex Hospital but sadly died.

Magda ran the Twitter account 1DCrew and had been photographed with the band dozens of times. She used the account to pass on messages from fans to the singers, and when possible they responded.

In a letter to parents Paul Enright the headteacher of St Marks said "This is a tremendously difficult time for Magda’s family, friends and the whole school community."

"We prayed for Magda in School this morning and we are offering support to students who are coping with grief. We take comfort from our belief that Magda is now at peace with God."

Many of her friends have followed One Direction's example and tweeted their own tributes causing the hashtag #RIPMagda to trend in the UK.
