A 13-year-old girl died on Friday after apparently being crushed by her horse.

Elizabeth Colton, of Garsdale, Cumbria, was knocked over by the horse in its field at around 2pm and it is thought it stood on her chest.

She was airlifted to hospital but died in the operating theatre of severe chest injuries.

A church service was held for Elizabeth on Sunday and an inquest will be held.
