TRIBUTES have been paid to a Tamworth teenager who tragically died from a sudden asthma attack over the weekend.

Danielle Potts, who was a student at The Rawlett School, died on Sunday (March 9) and has been described as “lovely, funny and intelligent” by her peers.

A statement released by the school, which was written by Danielle's close friends with support from her family, reads: "This tragic news has been a shock to us all and we are saddened by this news.

"Danielle was a lovely, funny and intelligent girl. She put the well-being of others before her own.

"In this past year Danielle had been working extra hard to ensure she would get the GCSE grades to be proud of and we couldn’t be more proud of her.

"One of Danielle’s favourite things about school was having lessons with her favourite teachers who have always believed in her and encouraged her to her full potential.

"There are many fond memories of Danielle that we will treasure in our hearts forever. We will make sure your memory will live on forever.

"You are at peace now angel, sleep tight."

Danielle had been part of the Rawlett community since joining the school from Flaxhill Primary School in 2009.

Rawlett headteacher Tim Bassett added that the entire learning community is shocked and saddened at this tragic news and that everyone's thoughts and prayers are very much with Danielle's family and friends at this time.
