Tributes have been paid to a “beautiful” and “amazing" two-year-old girl killed in a caravan fire while staying with her mum and three siblings.

Louisiana-Brook died in the blaze at Sealands Caravan Park in Ingoldmells, near Skegness, Lincolnshire, on Monday night.

Her mum Natasha Broadley and siblings, two boys and a girl, managed to escape the holiday home as it went up in flames at around 10:30pm.

The family, from Newark, Nottinghamshire, all received medical attention in hospital and were later released.

Louisiana-Brook’s grandmother­ Donna Broadley posted a series of snaps of the youngster as she enjoyed her time at the holiday park.

In an emotional Facebook post, she wrote: "Our hearts are broken as 'wee wee' was our baby of our family.

"Tash gave her everything, she was her right leg. Our hearts are broken.

"We as a family will be here for Tash and my grandchildren."

A GoFundMe page has been launched to help Natasha (known as Tash) and her family following the tragedy, and has already raised thousands of pounds.

Her friend Laurie Selfridge said: "Louisiana-Brook was the most beautiful amazing little girl. She was a sweet angel.

"Natasha adored all her children but she was like Natasha's shadow.

"Their worlds have been torn apart in pure tragedy.

"It’s soul destroying, we all love Tasha and her children. We’re a tight community in Newark.

"It’s totally knocked all of us, but the love being shown is unreal."

Officers are trying to establish the cause of the fire and said they are currently treating the toddler’s death as unexplained.

They have appealed for witnesses at the caravan park to come forward and for anyone with video footage of the incident to share it with them.
