A school girl was mown down and killed in front of her family just minutes after celebrating her sixth birthday party, an inquest has heard.
Daisy-May Brooks ran into the road as she played outside her home moments after cutting her birthday cake and was hit by a car.
Daisy-May was rushed to hospital after the collision on the 12th May earlier this year but died a short time later of multiple injuries.
Coroner Robin Balmain said the collision was "probably unavoidable".
The driver of the vehicle that hit the six-year-old, Claire Reynolds, told the hearing that she hadn't seen Daisy-May, who stepped out from behind a parked 4x4.
The verdict of the inquest was accidental death.
