An inquest has been opened into the tragic death of Forest School pupil Aashi Sinha, who died suddenly last week aged just 18.
A spokesman at Walthamstow Coroners’ Court said Aashi died at Queen’s Hospital, in Romford, on Wednesday.
No cause of death will be formally announced until the inquest closes later this year.
Friends have set up a Facebook tribute page for Aashi, who has been described as intelligent and happy teenager.
At the request of her family, donations are also being taken for charity Cardiac Risk in the Young, which raises awareness of heart conditions that cause sudden death.
Following news of her death, many pupils from her school, in College Place, Snaresbrook, expressed their grief on Twitter.
