Family mourn tragic loss of Kloe (15)

AN ARBROATH family has suffered the tragic loss of their 15-year-old daughter.

Kloe Richardson became unwell during a Highland dance class at Knox’s Church last night (Thursday).

The Arbroath Academy pupil was immediately rushed to Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, but lost her fight for life.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland Tayside Division confirmed: “Emergency services attended Knox’s Church, Howard Street, Arbroath, shortly before 6 p.m. last night (Thursday, June 6) after a 15-year-old girl took unwell. She was taken by ambulance under police escort to Ninewells Hospital, where tragically she was pronounced dead a short time later.

“Miss Richardson’s family are understandably extremely upset by their sudden loss and have said that she will be greatly missed. They do not wish to make any further comments and have requested that their privacy is respected at this difficult time.”

There are no suspicious circumstances and as with all sudden deaths a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
