More to follow as it comes in. People of Porty would like to show support and love for this family. ... -1-2846554
Tributes to Kelsey Hogg after fatal asthma attack

PUPILS and teachers at a high school have told of their shock after the tragic death of a teenager who suffered a suspected asthma attack.

Kelsey Hogg, 15, was rushed to hospital after collapsing at home on Sunday night, but could not be saved.

Classmates at Portobello High School have been laying flowers as the school’s flag flew at half-mast, while a tribute room was set up for them to share memories of a “model pupil”.

Headteacher Peigi Macarthur said the school, which the teenager had attended since late 2011, was trying to come to terms with the tragedy. A special remembrance service is being planned for after the Easter holidays.
