'Ecstasy' teenager dies
The teenager who died in a Scottish hospital
Julia Dawes died in Perth Royal Infirmary after falling into a coma.
She fell ill shortly after arriving home on Sunday from a night out celebrating a friend's birthday and was found unconscious in her bedroom.
It is believed she took two ecstasy tablets during the evening as she visited different nightclubs.
She fell into a coma and her parents, Alan and Jacqueline, who own the fitness shop where Julia worked made the decision to switch off her life support machine.
A statement from the hospital said that the teenager's parents and her 16-year-old brother Jonathon were "deeply grieved".
