A five-year-old girl has died after falling ill at school.
The youngster, named locally as Lily-May, became sick while attending Willow Bank Infant School in Woodley, near Reading, on Thursday.
She was taken to the Royal Berkshire hospital but could not be saved.
Judith Ramsden, director of children’s services at Wokingham Borough Council, told the Local Berkshire news website: ‘This is an extremely sad day and our thoughts and prayers are very much with family and friends of the little girl, all of the pupils, their families, and staff at the school.
‘We are supporting the whole school community in every way we can, and our specialist team will be back with them on Monday.
‘We sincerely ask that you give the school, and its families, both the space and the time they need to grieve and heal during the coming months.’
No further details have been revealed about any pre-existing medical conditions or a cause of death.
