In a statement, Norfolk police said: "Police can confirm a child has sadly died following an incident in Gorleston earlier today, Sunday 1 July 2018".

Police were called to Lower Esplanade in Gorleston yesterday at around 11.15am following reports a child had been thrown from a bouncy castle. She was taken to James Paget Hospital, where she died shortly after.

In a post on Facebook, she wrote: "Just seen the most horrific thing in my life".

According to Sky News, eyewitnesses heard a bang as the inflatable attraction "exploded", sending the youngster 20ft into the air.

One witness tweeted that the castle had "exploded" and the child was thrown into the air.

Images of the scene show an area of the beach, with what appears to be crumpled canvas and abandoned deck chairs, cordoned off by police. "Never ever will I let my girls on a bouncy castle, ever".

Paramedics received over a dozen calls on Sunday morning and were on the scene in four minutes, but the child went into cardiac arrest and could not be saved.
