No further action for two arrested after death of child on inflatable trampoline on Gorleston beach

Detectives have confirmed that no further police action will be taken against a man and woman arrested in connection with the death of a three-year-old girl.

Ava-May Littleboy tragically died when she was thrown from an inflatable trampoline that exploded on the Lower Esplanade at Gorleston Beach on 1st July last year.

A man and woman in their 40s from the Great Yarmouth area were arrested days after on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter, but it has been confirmed they will receive no criminal charges.

Norfolk Police said in a statement: "Following extensive enquiries and consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, a decision has been made not to proceed with any manslaughter offences against any individual or company.

"Detectives from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team will now liaise with the coroner in respect of the inquest and support Great Yarmouth Borough Council, which will review the evidence with a view to prosecuting under health and safety legislation."

A post-mortem examination found the Ava-May died from a head injury as a result of the incident.
