A former student of Towers School and Sixth Form Centre in Ashford has died after sheltering from the rain in the school grounds.
In the last hour the school's headteacher has given us this statement:
“An 18-year-old former student at the school who was sheltering from the rain in the school grounds yesterday evening became ill and was taken to hospital where he later died. The school was informed and a minute’s silence was observed this morning. Students are being offered any support they need and I would like to ask that the school community is given the opportunity to respond in its own time. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
