Police were called to Henfold Lane, Beare Green at 1pm today following a report of a 14-year-old boy collapsing. Sadly the boy died at the scene.
His death is being treated as unexplained, however at this stage his death is not thought to involve any third party and a file will be passed to the coroner’s office in due course.
The boy’s next of kin has now been informed. We would ask that the family’s privacy be respected at this time.
