STUDENTS and staff at a Huntingdonshire school are in mourning after the death of a “bright, bubbly” young girl.
Elouise Keeling, 14, suffered a severe asthma attack whilst at an air cadets meeting in Brampton on Tuesday evening.
An ambulance crew and an air ambulance were called but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Pupils and teachers at Hinchingbrooke School have described Elouise as “a really nice girl and a great friend” and a special assembly was held for Year 9 students at the school.
Di Beddow, vice principal at Hinchingbrooke, said: “Elouise was a bright, bubbly girl who was very popular, particularly with her tutor group.
“A tribute to her is being planned by her friends and her form tutor. Our thoughts are with Elouise’s family and friends at such a sad time.”
Mrs Beddow also said that there had been a “huge outpouring of grief” from students and teachers alike and that youth workers and councillors had come in to school to talk to those affected.

Elouise’s form tutor David Banham said that she will be missed and that she “was always happy”.
Flowers, messages and balloons have been placed at a tree where she used to sit with friends at lunch time (pictured).
Her fellow students said that Elouise had a self-confidence about her that made her do the right things and stick up for others, without worrying what others might think of her.
They said she loved history, art and horse-riding and that she was “funny and always made you feel better.”
