The toddler who died at Gorleston beach after being thrown from a trampoline on Sunday has been named as Ava-May Littleboy.

A lifeguard and paramedics attempted to save Ava-May but could not revive her on the beach in Gorleston. She later died in James Paget hospital.

A Just Giving webpage has now been set up for Ava-May, who died from her injuries at James Paget Hospital, by Abbie Littleboy.

The page description said: “On 1st July 2018, 3 year old Ava-May Littleboy tragically lost her life after a bouncy castle exploded on Gorleston beach.

Her family would like to kindly ask for donations to help fund a child’s bench in memory of Ava that will be put in her local park of Somersham, Suffolk.”

"She was not your ordinary little girl, as anyone she met, she would leave a lasting impression on.

"Anyone that met her would not want to forget her. Her infectious laugh and smile could light up even the darkest of rooms.”

– Statement from Ava-May Littleboy's family

"It's completely heartbreaking. This shouldn't happen to any family. She was a complete delight and very funny. She was just a bubble of joy really."

– Rev Jenny Seggar
