Girl died on quad bike

Lily had been on a four hour long horse ride with her mother Leona McCormick and at 5pm her brother Josh Doney, 20, came to collect them both from the field where they kept horses

A young schoolgirl was killed when she was thrown from a quad bike which rolled over in a sloping field after she grabbed the steering wheel.

Lily McCormick, 10, had been sitting on her older brothers lap and holding the steering wheel before the crash on farmland near Looe, Cornwall, last July, an inquest heard.

She fell from the all terrain vehicle after it made a sharp turn and sustained severe head wounds.
