A pre-inquest into the death of Ava-May Littleboy, who died after being thrown from an inflatable trampoline, is set to take place today (Tuesday).
The three-year-old from Somersham near Ipswich was on the inflatable at Gorleston beach when it exploded.
Her inquest opening heard she had died from a traumatic head injury.
The tragedy led to an outpouring of grief with many tributes left at the seaside playground.
Following the girl's death on July 1, 2018 a man and a woman in their 40s were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, but police later announced they would be dropping the charges following talks with the Crown Prosecution Service.
