Family and friends have gathered to pay tribute to a 16-year-old girl who was found dead at her school.

Dagmara Przybysz, originally from Poland, was found at Pool Academy in Redruth, Cornwall on Tuesday.

The event was organised on social media by her friends, many of them wearing red which was Dagmara's favourite colour.

One girl who spoke at the event said: "She was the girl who was always there for everyone else no matter what."

Devon and Cornwall Police are not treating the death as suspicious.
