Two people have been arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter over the death of a three-year-old girl who was thrown from an inflatable trampoline.

The inflatable “exploded” on Gorleston beach in Norfolk on July 1, sending Ava-May Littleboy into the air. She died from a head injury.

A man and woman in their 40s, from Great Yarmouth, have been arrested in connection with the death.

They are currently being questioned.

Eyewitnesses described how people tried to catch the girl, from Somersham in Suffolk, when it happened on Gorleston’s Lower Esplanade.

She had been at the beach with members of her family.

Norfolk Police said a post-mortem examination found she died from a head injury, but that further investigation would take place to confirm this.
