Pupils are planning a memorial to schoolgirl Victoria Noble, who after suffering what was believed to be a congenital blood disorder.

The 12-year-old, who was a student at Northgate High School in Ipswich, was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge on January 30 after falling ill earlier in the week.

Doctors were unable to save her and she died that evening. Staff and pupils have been coming to terms with their loss and headteacher Neil Watts said they hoped to "take something positive from their grief".

He added: "Victoria's class are starting to raise money to buy a bench in her memory. They hope to hold a cake stall next week, but it's early days as yet.

Mr Watts said Victoria had also been remembered at a year eight assembly this week.
