A family has paid tribute to a baby girl killed by a dog in Lancashire.

The family issued their tributes through Lancashire police on Thursday.

Ava’s mum, Chloe King, said: “As her mother, I just want the world to know how much I love her, miss her and truly cherished every moment with my little girl. I carried her for nine months, almost lost my life bringing her into the world and would do anything to have her back. I love you Twinkle, you are my world.”

Ava’s father, Dean Corless, said: “As her father, I just want to say what a wonderful and amazing mum Chloe is – Ava-Jayne could not have had anyone better. They are both the apple of my eye. Sleep tight Twinkle.”

Grandmother, Claire King: “Our twinkle Ava-Jayne is our absolute world and right now we need to grieve and remember her short life for the fun, amazing memories that we made. She is the most beautiful, happy cheeky little girl there ever was and was the light in all of our lives.”

Chloe King, 20, and her boyfriend, Lee Wright, 26, were arrested after the incident and later bailed pending further enquiries.
