She suffered serious head injuries and was air lifted to the Bristol Children’s Hospital, where she is still being treated.

“My thoughts go out to those involved for whom this has been a very traumatic event. We are carrying out an independent investigation into the circumstances that led to this girl’s serious injuries. We have met the girl’s family to explain our role and how the investigation will progress. We would ask that anyone who witnessed the events that morning in Camborne come forward to speak to us.”
