    It says that no one else was injured so I would guess that the little girl went of her own accord onto the road, unfair to blame motorcyclist it is simply a tragic accident, thoughts are with all affected.
    I was thinking this myself once a saint, in which case it's not the biker's fault and as you say, a tragic accident. Small children have no concept of fear and just go for it at times. Years ago they used to use reins but they're not politically correct these days and you'd probably get arrested for a breach of human rights on the child. I hope there were witnesses, independent of the people that were directly involved. There are 2 sides to everything and we're only getting one side of the story so far. RIP little one, sleep tight x"

THE FAMILY of a child killed on a Hampshire road last night have laid tributes to her at the scene.

They placed flowers by the side of Hamble Lane, where the tragedy occured at around 7pm.

Earlier, the youngster's auntie, Lucinda McIntosh, named the three-year-old as Billie King, as she visited the scene of the tragedy in Bursledon.

The youngster died in hospital after being hit by a blue Honda CBP 600 motorbike.

Police have today revealed that the motorbike rider was last night arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The 38-year-old Eastleigh man, who was uninjured in the incident, was this morning still in custody being questioned by detectives.

Ms McIntosh described her neice, who has not been formally identified, as a “beautiful little girl” who was always smiling.

In tears, Ms McIntosh, from Gosport, said: “She was a lovely little girl.

"They are a beautiful family and fantastic parents. She is going to be missed by everybody.

“She loved her singing. Obviously her grandparents are distraught.

“It's a big family so a lot of people are involved - and obviously a lot of anger as well.”

Dozens of tributes have been placed where the tragedy happened - including cards, flowers and toys.

One tribute read: "My little Billie.

"You will be in my heart always, petal.

"Lots and lots and lots of love forever, Nana."

Hampshire police confirmed last night that the youngster died as she crossed Hamble Lane, Bursledon, with members of her family.

A spokesman for the force said the child was taken to Southampton General Hospital but later died after the collision involving a motorbike.

No one else was injured in the incident.

Police were at the scene of the accident and closed the road between the junctions of Pound Road and Portsmouth Road.

The road was re-opened by 1am.

Anyone who witnessed the crash, or saw either the girl or the motorbike beforehand, should call Sgt Andy Lynch on 101, quoting operation Anderwood.
