Teenager dies of 'allergic reaction' in Bath shopping centre

A teenager who died after collapsing at a shopping centre is thought to have had an allergic reaction to something she ate.

15-year-old Chloe Gilbert collapsed in Bath's SouthGate shopping centre on Sunday afternoon.

Although emergency services attended the scene, she died shortly after falling ill.

Her family have paid a heartbreaking tribute to the school girl - who lived in Seend - and said she was diagnosed with an allergy to dairy products from an early age.
