Boy, 11, dies after falling ill at West London primary school as 'playground cordoned off'

AN 11-year-old boy has died at hospital today after falling ill at a school.

The playground at the west London was reportedly cordoned off for the most of the afternoon.

Emergency services were scrambled to Cherry Lane Primary School just after before midday.

Witnesses said he was treated by medics before he was rushed to hospital.

It is thought the boy was a pupil at the school and in Year 6.
