A CORONER has ruled that an 11-year-old boy, who suffered from panic attacks, died of natural causes.

Harvey Ashworth, of Fleet End Road, Warsash, was on holiday with his dad and his step-mum in Greece when he died last summer.

He was found in his bed on the first day of a two week holiday.

The court heard that he had suffered from panic attacks from a young age.

The post mortem examination failed to find a cause of death.

David Horsley, coroner for Portsmouth and South East Hampshire, said: ‘Everything here seems to point to a death due to natural causes.

‘It’s very difficult to understand because Harvey seemed to be such a healthy young boy apart from these problems with panic attacks.’

Addressing the family, Mr Horsley added: ‘I would like to express to you and everyone else my deepest sympathies.’
