Boy taken ill at Albion Place Medical Practice, Maidstone, dies

A boy who collapsed at a Maidstone doctor's surgery earlier in the week has died. 

Lee Green suffered a serious asthma attack at Albion Place Medical Practice, Sittingbourne Road, on Wednesday. 

He was taken to Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Pembury, before being transferred to the Evelina Children's Hospital in London, where he died last night.

Great-uncle Dan Marchant described Lee, who was an only child and had suffered from asthma since birth, as a sweet boy with a heart of gold. 

Mr Marchant said: "He was so sweet around people and so polite. He had a heart of gold and loved life. 

"He was so out going and didn't let his asthma stop him doing anything. He was like any kid that age. He liked football and stuff and he played sport at school.

"He was my great-nephew but I thought of him as a nephew."
