A 19-year-old girl who recently qualified as a chef has sadly passed away after suffering a fatal asthma attack while on shift. 

Lauren Reid had been working in Gin71 in the Merchant City on Friday night before she started to feel breathless so went outside to get fresh air. 

While outside Lauren suffered from a heart attack and never regained consciousness. Her family took the heart-breaking decision to turn off her life support. 

Gin71 shared on Facebook their condolences with Lauren and her friends and family.

The post reads: "It is with great sadness that we share news about a much loved member of the Cup and Gin71 family.

"Lauren Reid, one of our talented chefs, took ill last Friday night during shift at Gin71 Merchant City. Lauren passed away on Tuesday at the age of just 19.

"Lauren started an apprenticeship with us at the age of 16 and had since flourished into a confident member of our kitchen team at Cup and Gin71.

"Our team are heartbroken by this news and our thoughts are with Lauren’s parents, Elaine and John and her Gran, Helen at this terribly sad time."

A big Rangers fan, Lauren died with a Rangers top on and her Fernardo scarf draped round her. 

Her family have now asked if it is possible for her fellow bears to have a round of applause on the 19th minute on this Saturday's game against Livingston.
