One of Britain’s highest ranked young tennis players died suddenly after suffering an allergic reaction. Sadie Bristow went into anaphylactic shock during a family outing at Whitstable Castle in Kent on Monday 20 August, and was airlifted to St George’s Hospital in London. Despite adrenaline shot treatment by doctors, the nine-year-old did not recover.
