A six-year-old girl has died after collapsing while walking to school with her mum. Little Kyla Blake suddenly fell to the floor after taking only 20 steps from her home in Newport, Isle of Wight, last week.

Paramedics battled to save the youngster after she collapsed while heading to Nine Acres Primary School with her mother, Vickii Pitman. But despite their best efforts, she was tragically pronounced dead an hour later.

Shortly before her death, Kyla had given her 26-year-old mum cuddles on the sofa and helped her to pack her lunchbox ahead of school. The cause of her death remains unclear. Kyla leaves behind devastated parents Mrs Pitman and Justin Blake, as well as two sisters, Elena Blake, seven, and Soraya Blake, five.
