Pearl was taken to Prince Charles hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales where she died shortly afterwards.

The girl's family are being supported by specially trained officers.

The one-year-old daughter of a contestant on The Voice has been killed in a tragic accident.

The toddler died when a Range Rover parked in a driveway rolled down a hill and collided with a wall which collapsed.

Loving father Paul - who often posted about his lovely daughter on social media - was unable to save her as the speeding vehicle hit them.


A neighbour said: "Paul and Pearl had been to the park and were not far from home when this awful thing happened".

A neighbour said: 'She was such a gorgeous little girl with the most lovely big brown eyes - it's heartbreaking. It's heartbreaking. The whole street has been in tears.

When Paul, from South Wales, appeared on the show singing Van Halen's Jump in a jazz style, he joked that he was the son of Tom Jones. The little girl passed away after being airlifted to hospital, while 49-year-old Paul suffered serious injuries.

Paul and his wife Gemma are said to be "devastated" - she was at home looking after the couple's eight-month-old baby son when the accident happened.

'This will hit him really hard, he dotes on his kids, they are the world to him'.
