Huntingdon: Inquest Into Death Of Teenage Girl

An inquest will be held today into the death of a schoolgirl who died from an asthma attack after an ambulance allegedly went to the wrong address.

Elouise Keeling, 14, collapsed with breathing problems during an Air Cadets sports day at RAF Brampton near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, on June 25 last year.

An ambulance was called at 7.44pm but Elouise's family claimed it was sent to RAF Wyton, seven miles away, by mistake and did not arrive until 8.03pm.

Crews are supposed to respond to the highest priority cases within eight minutes but that journey took 19.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust said it was aware of the complaint but added that it was a ``complex'' matter.

The trust would not comment at the time on whether the ambulance went to an incorrect address.

The spokesman added: ``The incident is currently undergoing a full internal investigation.''

A coroner will resume the inquest at Huntingdon Law Courts this morning.
