The Senior Coroner for Inner North London handed down a narrative determination in the inquest touching on the death of Nasar Ahmed.
The inquest concerned a fourteen year old boy who became unwell at school while he was in an internal exclusion room. The Coroner found that the deceased suffered an anaphylactic reaction to the food that he had eaten for lunch. The anaphylaxis was slow reacting and eventually triggered an asthma attack. This led to a cardiac arrest, resulting in his death from brain damage four days later.
Joanne Clement represented Bow School and Julian Blake represented Tower Hamlets Borough Council at the inquest.
