Student Teacher Dies After Choking On Food

Monday October 1 2012

A BARNSLEY lad who was training to become a PE teacher has died after choking on food.

Adam Taylor, 21, of Hill Top Avenue, Athersley North, was found by his girlfriend Becky Morley in his halls of residence of Sheffield Hallam University last Sunday.

He spent a year as a teaching assistant at Barnsley Academy before he left for university.

Principal Dave Berry said the school was in shock.

"He was a wonderful young man who went through our sixth form, got his qualifications and asked if he could stay on as a teaching assistant to get some experience.

"He did that absolutely brilliantly, we couldn't fault him."

Adam leaves family including mum Andrea Goodlad and dad Jason Taylor.

Police said there were no suspicious circumstances.
