FRIENDS of tragic Kesgrave tot Paige Griffin today paid tribute to her as a lively little girl with a bubbly personality.

Preparations are being made for the funeral of the three-year-old who died earlier this month after falling into a swimming pool.

Luke Tokley, 15, of Glanville Place, is friends with Paige's older brother Jason and would often spend time at her house.

He said: "She was always running around full of life.

"She would always say 'come on, Tokey, come on in' when I went round because she couldn't say Tokley.

"When we said 'respect' she would put her fists to ours and say 'respect' back.
