Tributes have been paid to the five-year-old who died in Weymouth.
Flowers and teddies have been left outside of the house of the girl, who has been named locally as Alexys Brown.
A police presence remains outside the house while investigations continue while a steady stream of people have turned up to pay their respects.
The death of a five-year-old girl whose head became trapped in a lift is being investigated by the Health and Safety Executive alongside Dorset Police.
Firefighters freed the child with specialist equipment at the house in Emmadale Close, Weymouth, but she died at the scene.
Dorset County Council has said it didn't install the lift, saying it was there when the family moved in.
The Aster Group housing association released the following statement.
“We’re sorry to learn of a death at one of our properties at Emmadale Close, Westham, yesterday and our thoughts are with the little girl’s family at this difficult time.
“This is now a police matter and we will assist the investigation in any way we can. Due to the ongoing investigation into this incident, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further at this stage.”
Dorset reporter Duncan Sleightholme has sent us the latest update from the scene of the tragic incident.
