A teenager died after having an asthma attack.

A 17-year-old boy, who has not been named, was taken from Mill Hill Park by ambulance on August 14 after reports of cardiac arrest.

Police were called at around 4.30am and the London Ambulance Service took him to hospital as it was established that he was suffering from an asthma attack.

He died later that morning.

Police are treating it as non-suspicious and confirm that rumours circulating about a stabbing in the park are untrue.
