Notes on her file say that emergency services were called but were unable to save her.
The Home Office recorded her cause of death as unknown and noted a police investigation was underway. Internal notes state she had pre-existing medical conditions, including a heart defect, which was the suspected cause of death. A High Profile Notification (HPN) form noted she had frequently been hospitalised during her short life.
The infant had been living in dispersal (long-term) accommodation, and an asylum claim had been made in her name the day after she was born. The HPN form flagged that her death might attract media attention. A range of tabloid newspapers reported on an infant death on the same day; pictures taken by locals showed police and ambulance vehicles at the scene.
