A BEAUTIFUL floral tribute has been laid at the grave of a Barrow toddler.

After visiting Barrow in October as part of his UK-wide tour to fight for improvements to children's services Jack Barnes decided to return to the town to commemorate the life of Poppi Worthington.

Poppi was just 13 months when she died after paramedics and police were called to her family home in Barrow in 2012.

A High Court judge and a coroner later ruled she had been sexually assaulted by her dad Paul Worthington.

Mr Barnes, also known as Scouse Megaphone Man, was moved to tears to hear local people recalling the tragedy and the missed opportunities to bring those responsible for her death to justice.

Thanks to a kind donation from Ulverston florist Floral & Hardy Mr Barnes and his family visited Poppi's grave at Barrow Cemetery on Saturday to place a beautiful floral tribute at her resting place.

"We were conscious that we had no way of contacting Poppi's mum so we tried to be as respectful as possible," the 45-year-old said.

"The flowers were beautiful, and we can't thank Floral & Hardy enough, and we hope Poppi's family and loved ones like the display."
