“Summer trusted us when she was alive, so she has got to trust us now she is dead”.
Those were the words of the Ratcliffe family as it battles tirelessly to get answers after the death of granddaughter Summer Mai Rogers-Ratcliffe – the “beautiful” toddler whose death remains unexplained more than two years later.
Little Summer was admitted to hospital in February 2012 with what numerous medical experts have described as a ‘non-accidental trauma’ caused by ‘blunt force’ to her head. She died hours later. But two years on, the Ratcliffe family, of Frank Lane, Thornhill, still have no answers as to how she died.
