Rhys Callaghan, 16, died from meningitis after learning he had achieved outstanding GCSE results. He complained of flu-like systems the day after he was told he had achieved 10 A-grades. He was admitted to Newcastle upon Tyne General Hospital, where he later died.

His family, who live in Newcastle, have since received precautionary treatment to help protect them from the Group C strain of meningococcal meningitis.
