A FORMER Sedbergh School student has tragically died following a cardiac arrest.

Henry Foster has been described as a 'born winner' filled with 'grit, determination and bravery' in the wake of his death.

An online fundraising page set up to cover costs such as the funeral and transportation of Mr Foster's body from America has already raised more than £40,000, despite being set up less than 24 hours ago.

In a post to social media, a spokesman for Sedbergh School said: "Throughout his time at Sedbergh, Henry was an integral part of Sedbergh School Football Club, as well as a role model for those in Winder House.

"We send our deepest condolences to Henry's family and friends at this difficult time."
