A woman who was thought to be Britain's youngest local councillor when she was elected has died suddenly.
 
Clarissa Slade, 21, was elected in 2015, when she was 18, to represent Tiverton as a Conservative councillor on Mid Devon District Council.
 
She was found at her home in Winchester, where she is going to university, by her housemate.
 
Her father, Colin Slade, said he was "devastated" by the loss of his daughter who "had much more to give".
 
It is not yet known what caused her death, Slade said he was "in the dark".
 
Police are currently treating her as unexplained and a post mortem is yet to take place.
 
The third-year classics student at Winchester University had been born with a heart defect and though doctors had told her she could live a normal life she had in recent weeks and had complained of pains and attended hospital.
 
Doctors found no cause for alarm, it is understood.
