Gran shares heartbreaking pics of two-year-old girl’s ‘last day having fun’ hours before she was killed in caravan blaze
A HEARTBROKEN gran has shared pictures of a two-year-old girl’s final moments “having fun” before she was killed in a caravan fire.
Louisiana-Brook died following the horror at Sealands Caravan Park in Ingoldmells, Lincs.
Her mum Natasha Broadley and three of the toddler’s siblings managed to escape the holiday home as it went up in flames.
Tributes have now flooded in for the youngster, who was originally from Newark, Notts.
Louisiana-Brook’s gran Donna Broadley posted a series of heartbreaking snaps of the beaming youngster as she enjoyed her time at the holiday park.
The grieving relative said the touching images showed the toddler on her “last day having fun”.
She said: “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.
Laurie Selfridge, who started the fundraiser, said: “As yesterday’s tragic news has broken all our hearts .. only god knows what pain Natasha and her children are going through right now.
“Their life has been torn apart in a million ways . Their baby sister so tragically taken from them all .. if only we can give Tasha some peace at this time by helping her in any way u can would be so appreciated.
“Please donate anything u can”.
Emergency crews were scrambled to the blaze on Monday night.
After being rushed to hospital, the mum and kids received medical attention and have since been released.
Police are still investigating the cause of the “unexplained” fire.
Residents of nearby caravans tried to help – but the holiday home was almost completely destroyed within minutes.
One holidaymaker who was staying in a caravan close to the fire said “It was scary how quickly it went up.”
Another eyewitness Shaun Walker, 54, was on adjoining caravan site, just yards from the scene, when he became aware of the blaze.
‘PEOPLE RUNNING IN PANIC’
Shaun said: “Our caravan site sits right next door and all of a sudden I smelt the smoke.
“I went outside and saw the caravan on fire. The flames were really high and crisping.
“People were running around in panic, I just thought to myself ‘I hope dear God that no one is inside, and that all the adults and children got out.’
“I tried to climb the perimeter fence of our caravan site to go and help. I wanted to go and help, but the fence was just too high and has spikes on the top.”
Lincolnshire Police have urged anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Inspector Jo Fortune, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “This is a devastating incident for all involved. We are in the very early stages of our investigations and the circumstances which led to the fire are not yet clear. We will be working closely with specialist teams to understand what happened.
“This is particularly harrowing, with a family losing a child, and we’d ask that people remember those victims and not share footage online.”
