The family of a young twin who died suddenly have paid a heartfelt tribute to their “loving, caring and funny” son.
George Spencer, 4, passed away on the evening of March 19 after paramedics attempted to save his life at a property in Clitheroe, Lancashire.
He was rushed to Royal Blackburn Hospital where he tragically died a short time later.
Police said they are assisting the coroner in trying to determine the cause of George’s death, but it is not being treated as suspicious.
George’s family said he loved giving lots of hugs and kisses and was happiest when playing with his twin brother Arthur.
Their tribute said: “George was very loving, caring, funny and always willing to give lots of hugs and kisses, ‘1000 kisses’ he would say.
“He was happiest playing outdoors in the woods or by the river with his twin brother, Arthur.
“He was liked and loved by everybody who met him. We would ask that our privacy is respected at this time.”
In a statement, Lancashire Constabulary said: “We received a call at 7.30pm from the ambulance service to say paramedics were attempting to save the life of a child at an address in Clitheroe.
“Police are assisting the coroner in ascertaining the cause of George’s death, however, his death is not being treated as suspicious.”
