Stowmarket schoolgirl dies during PE lesson

Lily Webster, a year 11 pupil at Stowmarket High School, was taking part in the PE lesson at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre when she collapsed.
The ambulance service was called at 14:30 GMT on Monday, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Head teacher Keith Penn said: "The whole Stowmarket High School community are shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden death."
Suffolk County Council said counsellors are being sent to the school to speak to other children who need support.
Mr Penn said: "Popular, active, bright and with a very wide circle of friends, Lily will be desperately missed by students and staff and all those who knew her.
"All our thoughts and prayers are with her family and close friends at this time."
