Mother talks of 'devastating effect' of baby girl's death

The death of Hayley has had a devastating effect on our entire family. We have always believed that we owed it to our beautiful little girl to ensure that no stone was left unturned in our search to discover how she came to die.

We would also like to thank members of the public who have sent so many messages of support to us. We have been touched by their kind words and this has given us the strength to continue our fight for answers.
