Tributes Paid To Harlow Bouncy Castle Victim
A seven year-old girl who died at a funfair in Harlow when the bouncy castle she was on blew away has been described as "the most loving little girl".
Summer Grant, from Norwich, suffered serious injuries when strong winds blew the inflatable around 150 metres on Saturday afternoon.
Her mother Cara Blackie said: "Words just can't explain how I am feeling right now, life is just truly cruel.
"Summer was a bright beautiful and most loving little girl it so unfair that you have been taken it just doesn't make sense, I'm truly heartbroken."
Summer's father Lee Grant said: "I never thought our beautiful angel would be taken away from us or that we would outlive her.
"She was the most happy, polite and beautiful girl in the world. I still can’t come to terms she's not here.
"We all love you so so much, you will always be with us; love you to the moon and back, all our love Daddy, Mummy and family xxxx".
Essex Police are still looking for any witnesses to come forward, particularly anyone who took videos at the park.
They are asking anyone with footage to contact them either by email at email@example.com by calling 101 and quoting incident number 737 of March 26.
