Outside the court, a statement was read out on behalf of Freya's family:
Freya was a beautiful little girl with a sparkle in her eye and an intoxicating smile. Her energy was endless.
She was an adoring older sister to her brother and a loving, caring friend and daughter who lived and loved life to the full. The night before she died she "went to sleep excited" as she was due to travel to Germany to visit her grandparents.
The next time we saw her, she was fighting for her life in hospital. We never got the chance to say goodbye or tell her how much we loved her. We've lost our beautiful baby, the most precious thing a parent can ever lose. Today marks the first step to getting closure and saying goodbye to our daughter.
Nothing will ever bring Freya back but we will continue to pursue all possible avenues to give Freya the justice she deserves.
