The toddler who died after a collision with a van in Tintagel yesterday lunchtime has been named as Holly Young.

Holly, who is thought to have been walking in the village with her sister when the incident took place just after noon, suffered serious head injuries.

She was flown to Derriford in Plymouth by the Cornwall Air Ambulance, but was pronounced dead at the hospital.

She lived with her family a short distance from where the accident occurred in Molesworth Street.

A spokesman for DEvon and Cornwall Police said: "We are appealing for witnesses to the collision and in particular anyone who was walking or driving in the area at the time who can recollect seeing a young woman walking with a pushchair accompanied by a small toddler.

"Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting police number 280 of February 25th."
