A seven-year-old girl has been killed in a “weather related” incident in which a car hit a house.

Devon and Cornwall Police were called to Bodrigan Road in Looe, Cornwall at about 2.30pm on Thursday.

A Nissan car had hit a house on the road, leaving a seven-year-old girl with life-threatening injuries.

The girl, believed to be a pedestrian, was declared dead at the scene.

A force spokesman confirmed that the incident was believed to be weather related.
