The parents of a six-year-old girl who died at a campsite in Hampshire have said they are "absolutely devastated" by her death.

Lee Harris, 30, and wife Tracey, 40, said Isabelle was "a really special girl and this is a huge loss".

Ambulance staff called to the Holmsley campsite in the New Forest early on Friday found the girl "fitting". She then went into cardiac arrest.

Hampshire Police said post-mortem tests showed the death was not suspicious.

"Isabelle was our whole world; everything we ever did was for her."

The couple added: "Our thanks also go to Hampshire Constabulary.

"We thank them for the way they have treated us, being as open and honest as they can.
