A fake fundraising profile has been set up in the name of a six-year-old girl who died, under the pretense of raising money for her funeral.

Daisy Dymyd was found unresponsive at her home in Tuxford, Nottinghamshire on Monday and was pronounced dead after being airlifted to Sheffield Children's Hospital.

Nottinghamshire Police have now issued a warning after a user claiming to be Daisy's uncle launched a fake JustGiving page, raising £140 before it was reported by her family themselves.

A spokeswoman said the family had not been raising money, and said officers were working to get the account removed.

In a tweet posted on Friday, the force urged people not to donate.

Daisy's family paid tribute to the "happy little girl" earlier in the week.

"Our beautiful daughter was the centre of our world and we can't believe she's gone," they said.

"She will be so missed by everyone that knew her. She was a such a happy little girl who lit up our lives and made the world brighter."

Nobody has been arrested in relation to her death.
