The family of the three-year-old victim of a trampoline tragedy in Gorleston have paid tribute to her.

Ava-May Littleboy, from Somersham in Suffolk, was thrown into the air by a suspected explosion on an inflatable trampoline at the beach on Sunday, and died at James Paget Hospital.

Her family 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.”

Her aunt Laura Reid, 28, wrote on Facebook: “I will love you always and forever. Sleep tight my little angel.

“My everything my princess! Until I see you again my heart is broken xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.”

Abbie Littleboy, who set up a Just Giving webpage to fund a child’s bench in memory of Ava-May, posted on Facebook: “Please take a read of our story and help raise money for our beautiful angel.”
