HEARTFELT tributes have been paid to an Anglesey teenager who died after an asthma attack.

Hundreds of flowers have been laid at Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni for pupil Cleo Wyn Lloyd, aged 14, of Valley, who died on Monday.

It is understood that Cleo, of the Glantraeth estate, suffered a heart attack on her way to hospital on Saturday and was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool.

Headteacher Haydn Davies said a counselling service had been offered to students and staff in light of the tragedy.

He added: “Cleo was a lovely, quiet girl, who took care of other children and always put the needs of other children before her own.

“She was so happy in the school, and always had a smile on her face, and friends were very important to her.”

Mr Davies said pupils hoped to raise money for Alder Hey and for a memorial bench to the former Ysgol Caergeiliog pupil.

Anglesey councillor Goronwy Parry, who represents Valley said: “My condolences go to the family.

“I am sure that the sympathies of the community are also with the family in their great loss.”

Councillor Bryan Owen, who represents Tudur ward in Llangefni, said Cleo’s death was a “terrible tragedy.”

He added: “Our sympathies are with the family - there aren’t any words to describe what her family must be feeling at this sad time.”

Emotional tributes have been paid to Cleo on Facebook.

Ryan Hughes said: “RIP Cleo. Such a nice, lovely girl. You will never be forgotten, sleep tight.”

Lucy Kelly added: “Can't believe such a young girl like you has been taken from us.

“Such a caring lovely girl with a lovely warm smile, rest in peace princess, we are all thinking of you.”

Cleo’s grandfather Peter Lloyd said her mother Fiona and the rest of the family were devastated

It is understood that Cleo’s organs have been donated for transplant.
