North West Wales

Girl, seven, dies at caravan park near Barmouth

Further tests are being carried out to find the cause of death of a seven-year-old girl who was taken ill on holiday at a caravan site in Gwynedd.

Paramedics and an RAF rescue helicopter were called to Islawrffordd Caravan Park, Talybont, Barmouth, early on Monday.

Harriet Hubball from Warrington, Cheshire, was flown to hospital in a serious condition but later died.

North Wales Police said her death was not being treated as suspicious.

It is understood the young girl was staying with her father in a touring caravan on the site during half term while her grandparents were staying at another site.

'Medical emergency'

A spokesperson for the holiday park said the first they became aware of the incident was when two ambulances were seen outside the tourer.

The spokesperson said they have since spoken with the father, who has stayed at the site previously, to pass on their condolences.

The coroner's office for north west Wales said further tests were being carried out to establish the exact cause of death.

An ambulance service spokesperson said two ambulances were called to a "medical emergency" at 04:35 BST on Monday with the helicopter from 22 Squadron from RAF Valley on Anglesey.
