Teenager found dead at house in Blaenymaes

Police are investigating the sudden death of a 14 year-old pupil at Bishop Gore School in Swansea.

Nyah James, a year 10 pupil,  was found dead at a house in Blaenymaes yesterday.

Her family have paid this tribute: "Nyah was a beautiful vibrant 14 year old child that had her whole life ahead of her.

"Due to circumstances that were beyond our control we lost our little girl.

"She had so much ahead of her and wanted to travel and see the world. She loved her friends, her family and we loved her with all of our hearts.

"Our life will never be the same again."

Headteacher at Bishop Gore Ryan Davies has paid tribute to Nyah.

He said: "Everyone at Bishop Gore School has been deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Nyah James who was popular with both her fellow pupils and school staff.
"Nyah was achieving well and we were looking forward to her receiving excellent results at the end of year 11.
"Understandably since hearing of her passing pupils and staff at the school are very upset and trained staff are on hand to support them.
"Our thoughts are very much with her family and friends at this very sad time."

A justgiving page has been set up to help the family pay for funeral arrangements:
