Lee and Tracey Harris (aged 30 and 40 respectively) parents of Isabelle Harris, who tragically died in the early hours of Friday, April 6, have issued the following statement:
“We are all absolutely devastated about what has happened. No words are strong enough to describe how we feel at the moment. Isabelle was our whole world; everything we ever did was for her. She was a really special girl and this is a huge loss to everyone who knew her.
“The police investigation has concluded and a file will be passed to the coroner. We really don’t want to discuss this further. We want to find out why this happened and we would like to leave the police to get on with this.
“We would like to thank the owners of the camp site for their assistance and apologise to other campers on the site who were there to enjoy their bank holiday weekend.
“We would like to give special thanks to the first responders and paramedics who treated Isabelle at the camp site.
“Our thanks also go to Hampshire Constabulary. We thank them for the way they have treated us, being as open and honest as they can. We also appreciate their ongoing support and have no issues with their actions.”
Lee and Tracey will not be issuing a photograph of Isabelle and now wish to be left in peace to grieve for their daughter. We ask the media to respect their wishes.
