She said: "There is no easy way of putting this into words but it’s safe to say everyone in our Clydebank community and anyone who has read the heartbreaking news of the one-year-old baby girl who has passed after a horrific accident.

"I don’t know the family personally but I live five minutes away from their home and as a mother I can’t even begin to imagine the suffering and grief this baby girls mother and family are going through.

"I would like to raise some money to give to the mother to help her in any way she needs."
