The heartbroken family of the County Down girl who died last week after collapsing at school have described her as an angel and a mother hen to her three younger sisters.

10-year-old Isobel Anderson was rushed to hospital when she took ill at Dromore Central Primary School a week ago today. 

She passed away on Wednesday.

Isobel's grieving father Tom has been speaking exclusively to Q Radio News.

He's praising school and medical staff for their efforts to save his daughter...

Isobel wanted to be a teacher...

She was much-loved - at home and at school...

It isn't yet clear what caused the tragedy...

A funeral service was held at Dromore Cathedral on Sunday with hundreds of mourners gathering to pay their last respects to the popular P7 pupil. 

Isobel is survived by her father, mother Heidi and three sisters, Mary, Tess and Kate, who also attend Dromore Central Primary.

The family is appealing for privacy.
