Two people have been released under investigation in connection with the death of a young girl on Gorleston beach.

Ava-May Littleboy, aged 3, from Somersham in Suffolk, died after being thrown from an inflatable trampoline on the Lower Esplanade on Sunday July 1.

The man and a woman, both aged in their 40s and both from the Great Yarmouth area, were arrested on Thursday on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter.

The pair have now been released from custody but remain under investigation while the enquiry continues.

Following Ava-May’s death her family paid tribute to her.

They said: “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.”
