A world-famous body-builder has paid tribute to a ‘little princess’ who has died after a collision on the North Devon Link Road.

Aarron Lambo visited North Devon in June for a body-building show, where he met nine-year-old Keira Ball.

In a post on his Facebook page, which has more than 700,000 followers, he paid a touching tribute to her.

He said: “I can’t imagine what her dad is going through right now..

“I met this gorgeous little girl when I did a guest appearance at the Devon Classic only a month ago.

“When I say she was happy I mean she was genuinely glowing that day.

“I just know Keira had such a bright and successful future ahead of her and it’s such a tragedy her life was cut so short.

“I got upset this morning hearing this news and I want Joe and the rest of her family to know my thoughts are with them..

“Everyone please take something from this awful news and learn from this beautiful little girl.

“LIFE is random and we NEVER know what’s round the next corner.. let’s not worry about irrelevant problems and concentrate more on living everyday like it’s your last and above all make every moment you spend with your children a MEMORY.”

Keira was pronounced dead yesterday (Tuesday). Her mother and brother remain in a serious condition in hospital.

Her father, Joe Ball, paid a beautiful tribute to his daughter this morning (Wednesday) - read the full tribute here.
