The uncle of Hellesdon girl Summer Grant who died when a bouncy castle was blown away at an Easter fun fair has thanked everyone for their support and donations.
The seven-year-old, who went to Valley Primary School in Hellesdon, died from her injuries when a bouncy castle was blown away in Harlow Town Park at an Eater fun fair on Saturday afternoon.
Summer's uncle Shawn Grant told the BBC the support the family had received was 'overwhelming'.
A crowdfunding page had raised more than £8,000 by Wednesday morning.
'It's such a tragic thing to happen. She was a little angel - so kind, so loving, so polite - adorable little girl,' he said.
'On social media, the messages we've received, it's just been wonderful, it really has.
'I just want to say, on behalf of the family, thank you so much for all the flowers, gifts, donations towards the funeral costs.'
A woman, 24, and a man, 27, both from Cambridgeshire, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence and bailed until May.
