Family mourn 11-year-old girl killed in boating accident

The family of an 11-year-old girl killed in a boating accident at a watersports centre have paid tribute to their "beautiful" daughter.

Mari-Simon Cronje died after an accident during a children's birthday party at Princes Club, Bedfont, west London, on Saturday.

Her family said they were "battling" to come to terms with the tragedy.

Mari-Simon, from London, was airlifted to West Middlesex Hospital but died there later.

A man aged 22, thought to be the boat driver, was arrested after the incident and bailed.
