The death of a 14-year-old girl who fell ill at a party in Brighton was due to natural causes, police have said.

Gabrielle Price, of Coleridge Crescent, in Worthing, died after having a cardiac arrest at the party in Birdham Road, Moulsecoomb, on 21 November.

It has now been established it followed broncho-pneumonia which resulted from a streptococcal A infection.

A 39-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs and remain on bail.

Gabrielle, a pupil at Davison High School in Worthing, was described as a lively and lovely girl by her parents Angie and Chris Price.

They said: "Her untimely death has left an enormous hole in the lives of her family and wide circle of friends.

"She was a fun-loving person and the many tributes that have been paid to her reflect what a wonderful young woman she was."
