Summer Grant’s parents have paid tribute to her

The mother of a seven-year-old girl who died after a bouncy castle she was playing on was blown away has paid tribute to her.

Summer Grant, from Norwich, died in Harlow, Essex, on Saturday.

Her mother Cara Blackie said: “Words just can’t explain how I am feeling right now, life is just truly cruel,” adding that she was “heartbroken”.

A woman, 24, and a man, 27, have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence, and bailed.

Ms Blackie added: “Summer was a bright beautiful and most loving little girl. It so unfair that you have been taken, it just doesn’t make sense.”

Summer’s father Lee Grant said: “She was the most happy, polite and beautiful girl in the world. I still can’t come to terms she’s not here.”
