A police spokesman added: “At about 1.20pm yesterday, we were called to assist the ambulance service following the sudden death of a 17-year-old girl at a property in Cheddar.

“We’re carrying out enquiries on behalf of the coroner’s office.

“Our thoughts are with her family at this very difficult time.”
