TRIBUTES have been paid to a little girl who died following an incident at the home she shared with her mum.

Bethan Colebourn, who was three, was airlifted to Salisbury District Hospital at around 7pm on Thursday, October 19.

Emergency services were called to a concern for welfare at an address in Whitsbury Road, Fordingbridge.

She was pronounced dead later that evening.

A 35-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken into police custody, where she then suffered a medical episode and was rushed to hospital.

She was later released under investigation.

Bethan's funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon.

A tribute released via Hampshire Constabulary reads: “Family and friends are devastated at our tragic loss.

"Bethan brought so much happiness and joy to so many people’s lives.

"Bethan was a fun loving, adventurous and caring young girl who will be dearly missed.

“She will be in our hearts and minds forever.”

Bethan's family - including parents Claire and Michael Colebourn - have asked for privacy.

Mr Colebourn is the chief executive of Southampton-based marine interiors firm Trimline.
