Police have named an 18-month-old girl who died after falling into a pond in Scotland.

Ella-Grace Rimington, known as “Gracie”, fell into the water at a property in Dollar Avenue, Falkirk, on Thursday.

She was rushed to Forth Valley Royal Hospital but died a short time after arriving.

Police confirmed the toddler's identity on Friday and also supplied a picture.

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing, but the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Detective Inspector Craig Faulds of Forth Valley's CID said: “This is a heart-breaking incident in which a young girl has died.

“The family has asked that they be given privacy at this very difficult time and I would like to ask the public and media to please respect the family's wishes as they deal with their unimaginable loss.”
