Emotional tributes are being paid to the toddler who died after a crash in Tintagel.

Two year old Holly Young was walking through the village with her sisters when it happened.

Flowers and messages of sympathy have been left at the scene on Molesworth Street.

The tot was airlifted to Derriford on Tuesday, but doctors could not save her.

In a statement, Holly's family say: "Holly, our two year old daughter who would have been three in April, sadly lost the fight for her life on Tuesday 25th February 2014 having been involved in a collision with a vehicle in Tintagel around midday whilst her sister took her and baby sister to the shops.

"We still cannot believe our beautiful daughter has been taken from us and as a family are still in shock. We would like to thank those who rushed to help Holly and the emergency services who fought to save her life, sadly to no avail.

"Tintagel is a small community and we have been overwhelmed with the flowers and wishes left at the scene.

"Rest-in-peace our little girl, you will be missed greatly by all of your family."

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police have been called to the scene of a serious collision in Molesworth Street, Tintagel.
 
"A toddler, who was a pedestrian at the time, was in collision with a van in the village just after noon.
 
"The young girl was taken to Derriford Hospital via the air ambulance in a critical condition. The van driver is being treated at the scene by paramedics.

"Sadly the girl was pronounced dead at Derriford Hospital.
 
"Her next of kin are aware."

The driver of the van is thought to have suffered a medical episode just after the crash.

Anyone who might have seen something after midday on Tuesday is being urged to come forward or call police on 101 quoting reference 280 of 25th February.
