London teenager dies after ‘taking ecstasy’ at illegal rave

The head of the Met Police has told Heart the death of a 16 year old who’s thought to have taken ecstasy is a tragedy.

Daniel Spargo-Mabbs was taken to hospital in the early hours of Saturday 18 January 2014 after going to an illegal rave at an industrial site in Hayes.

Police were called at about 4am by paramedics who were treating the unconscious teenager at the rave at Pump Lane, Silverdale Road.

Russ Spargo, a family member, tweeted on Sunday: “Dan’s only 16 fighting for his life. Went to a rave, took Ecstasy. V bad reaction. He’s fighting for his life.”

Last night he wrote: “Man down… Bless him Dan died about 12.50 We’re all shell shocked.”

Richard Parrish, headteacher at the Selborne Road school, yesterday cancelled sixth-form classes and wrote to parents to inform them of the news.

He said: “It is with great regret that I have to write and tell you that a student in Year 12, Daniel Spargo-Mabbs, was taken ill over the weekend and has died at lunchtime today.

“Since this directly affected every member of the sixth form we spoke to both Year 12 and Year 13 at the start of afternoon school and have cancelled lessons this afternoon.

“We are still taking in this terrible news.

“As you can appreciate this will have a significant impact on the whole school community this week and for some time to come.

“Please support Daniel’s family, his closest friends and the school with your prayers as we go through this together.”
