Around 50 people from nearby caravans were moved and had to stay in emergency accommodation at the Laver Leisure site.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Jo Fortune said: ‘This is a devasting incident for all involved.

‘We are in the very early stages of our investigations and the circumstances which led to the fire are not yet clear. We will be working closely with specialist teams to understand what happened.

‘We would like to appeal to anyone who was there last night and has not yet spoken to police to come forward, and for anyone with video footage to please share that with officers to add to our intelligence of the incident.

‘This is particularly harrowing, with a family losing a child, and we’d ask that people remember those victims and not share footage online.’
