The parents of the two-year-old girl who suffered severe burns in a caravan fire say they are "praying every minute".

Emmy Taylor was rescued from the blaze in which her grandfather Robert Taylor, 58, and his son - Emmy's uncle - Andrew, 26, from Flint, both died.

Ian Taylor and Laura Linford said their "beautiful little princess" is in a life-threatening condition in hospital.

She has undergone several operations since the fire on Saturday.

Emmy was transferred to Liverpool's Alder Hey for specialist treatment after being airlifted to hospital in Bangor following the fire at a holiday park near Barmouth, Gwynedd.

In a statement, Emmy's parents say: "We would like to thank everyone for their messages of support.

"Our beautiful little princess Emmy Danielle is in a life threatening condition in Alder Hey hospital where she is undergoing many different operations.

"We are praying every minute that she is able to fight through."

Their statement continued: "She is an amazing little princess and is so brave.

"We just want everyone to pray for her and give her the strength she needs.

"She is our amazing little girl and we need her.

"We know her granddad and uncle Andrew will be up there helping her."

The cause of the fire at Sunny Sands caravan park, Talybont, near Barmouth, is still being investigated.

The fire happened at about 0145 BST on Saturday and is not being treated as suspicious.

Emmy's grandmother suffered burns to her arms in the fire.

Reports said she managed to escape, then forced open a window to reach in and pull Emmy to safety.
