Former Ilford pupil dies in go-karting accident

Amy Rose Coxall, 15, who was killed when her scarf was caught during go-karting, attended Ilford Jewish Primary School before her family moved to Hong Kong.


A former Ilford Jewish Primary School pupil has died after her scarf became tangled in a go-kart in Hong Kong.

Amy Rose Coxall, 15, was go-karting with friends at the Diamond Coast International Kart Circuit in Tuen Mun when her go-kart reportedly veered off the track and stopped suddenly.

Local reports suggest that Amy was pronounced dead on arrival at the Tuen Mun Hospital at 4.30pm on Wednesday.

Amy was a pupil at Ilford Jewish Primary School for two months in 1999 before her family moved to Hong Kong, where she was a pupil at the Island School.

Roz Levin, the IJPS headteacher, said: “The whole school community were very shocked at this tragedy and send our condolences to her family.”
