A teenage girl who died suddenly has been described by her family as a "bubbly and vivacious young girl who lived life to the full".

Camilla Irvine, 16, was found unconscious at a house in Scorton, near Richmond, on Saturday morning.

Efforts by paramedics to revive her were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead in hospital.

Police are treating Camilla's death as "unexplained" and are waiting for the results of a post-mortem examination.

In a statement parents Wendy and David Irvine and her brother George said: "Milla was a bubbly and vivacious young girl who lived life to the full.

"She had a wide circle of friends, was caring about everyone she knew and was passionate about fashion.

"Milla's loss will leave a massive hole in not only our lives but those of her many, many friends."

Camilla was a former pupil at Ripon Grammar School and completed her GCSEs earlier this year before moving to Richmond School as an A-level student.

Martin Pearman, Ripon Grammar School's head teacher, earlier paid tribute to her in a letter to parents on the school's website.

He wrote: "Camilla was a very talented student with boundless enthusiasm and energy."
