The parents of a toddler killed when a fire surround fell onto her at her home near Norwich have urged other people to check their own homes are safe to prevent more deaths.

Speaking through a family friend, two-year-old Trinity Liliana Coward's parents thanked the community for their support, but said everybody should make sure their own children are safe.

"They don't want her death to be in vain," family friend Sharon Robinson said.

"We can't bring her back, but if other people can check their surroundings so it doesn't happen to another child - that's the message that they would like to get across."
