Dairy allergy boy, 10, dies.

A BOY of 10 with a severe dairy allergy collapsed at school and died minutes after his dinner yesterday.

Habib Khan ate at home as usual but fell ill in the school playground a little later.

Staff alerted his father, Ali Khan, 46, and he arrived just as Habib was being lifted into an ambulance. The youngster died before getting to hospital.

Dad-of-eight Mr Khan said: "He was a much-loved little boy. We cared for him greatly."

Staff at the 750-pupil school in Small Heath, Birmingham, were told later yesterday.
