The one year old girl whose death sparked a murder investigation has been named.

The family of Orianna Crilly-Cifrova, who died in Radcliffe near Manchester on Thursday, have paid tribute to her.

"As a family we have been asked to say a few words about our beautiful Orianna, but even a thousand words could not begin to describe how much she was loved and how much joy she brought to our lives.

Orianna was just 12 months old, learning to walk and talk and starting to develop her own little personality. She had the cheekiest smile with the biggest brown eyes, a combination that melted out hearts and wrapped us around her little finger.

Orianna was a daughter, grand daughter and great grand daughter and the void she leaves can never be filled.

She was our gift and cruelly taken from us and we are unsure how we can live without her.

Orianna was our little princess and she was the centre of her daddies world. He loved her millions and she will always be in his heart and his memories and will be loved forever.

The family would like to thank family and friends for their support and ask for privacy during this tragic time ".

A man and a woman have been charged over Orianna's death.
