Toddler killed by fireplace fall

A two-year-old girl has died after a fire surround fell on her in her home.

Trinity Liliana Coward was found with serious injuries at her house in Theobald Road, Norwich, at about 5pm on Sunday.

She was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital but died shortly after arrival.

Her parents, Shaun and Kelly Coward, are said to be devastated.

They issued a statement, saying: "Our little princess. Your gorgeous smile and those dimples forever etched on our hearts.

"Daddy's little baby girl, shine bright like a diamond in the sky. Mummy's little angel, so loving and cuddly."

Trinity is understood to have had brothers and sisters.

Her death is not being treated as suspicious.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "The circumstances surrounding the infant's death will be subject to a coroner's inquiry although early indications are that this was an unforeseen and tragic event in a family home."
