Sharlotte’s family said in a statement: ‘Sharlotte was so beautiful, full of life, always smiling, sassy, so brave and happy.

‘Every night since she was born she would never sleep without holding her mum’s hand.
‘There will never be another child like her for anyone who met her. She was taken so early from us and will never be forgotten.’
Staffordshire Police said Sharlotte was walking along Endon Road in Norton with her dad when the incident occurred.
Investigators have appealed for witnesses to the collision or anyone who saw a blue Skoda Rapid in the area to come forward.
Sergeant Rich Moors said: ‘We’re continuing to investigate and understand fully what happened last night.
‘We’d urge anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage, or who witnessed the collision, or saw a blue Skoda in the area to get in touch with us.
‘Again, we’d kindly urge people not to speculate as to the circumstances.
‘Sharlotte’s family are being supported by specially trained officers. Our thoughts are with them all at this time.’
