A seven-year-old girl who was killed by a car in a crash in icy conditions was "a beautiful princess", her family say.

Maisie Duncan, a twin, died when the vehicle hit her and crashed into a house as she was playing in snow in Looe, Cornwall, last Thursday.

Her mother Abbi Peat said: "Our little Maisie was the most beautiful, caring, kind, smart, perfect little thing and she will never ever be forgotten."

Police said no arrests have been made as inquiries continue into the crash.

"I love you Maisie sleep tight mummy and daddy love you forever and always," Ms Peat added.

She also gave thanks for the support shown by members of the community.

Ms Peat said Maisie's twin brother Charlie is "a bit lonely and lost about what's going on and he misses his sister a lot".

Maisie's great aunt, Edwina Hannaford, described her as "a ray of sunshine in our lives, a beautiful princess who was loved by all who met her".
