A second year Bristol Uni student has tragically died

Felix Mills, 21, is the second Bristol Uni student death in the past week

Avon and Somerset Police has confirmed the “sudden death” of a second year Bristol Uni student.

Felix Mills, 21, died last Monday (31st January) at an address on King Street in the city centre.

Felix was an active member of the student community, taking part in multiple societies alongside his politics and international relations degree.

The cause of the student’s death remain unknown.

However Avon and Somerset Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious.

“On Monday 31st January at approximately 3:20pm, officers attended an address on King Street, Bristol following a report of the sudden death of a 21-year-old man,” the force confirmed.

“The circumstances of the death are not believed to be suspicious. Our thoughts are with his family, who have been informed.”

This is the second student death in the city in the past week.

Last Tuesday, first year student, George Franks-Herbert, died outside Gravity nightclub after attending popular student night, BED Mondays.

There is no evidence to suggest the two deaths are related.

The university said it is reaching out to Felix’s friends and course mates to offer support.

Pro Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience, Professor Sarah Purdy, said the death of a fellow student affects “the entire University community” and she reiterated her comments that affected students should contact the university’s wellbeing services.

In a full statement, she said: “It is with great sadness that I can confirm the death of a second year Politics and International Studies student Felix Mills.

“Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this time.

“Felix was a member of several student societies and we are reaching out to his friends and class mates to offer support.

“The death of a student affects the entire University community and I ask that anyone who needs support contacts our wellbeing services who are here to help.”
