Ben Goldsmith’s teenage daughter has been tragically killed in a quad bike accident at the family’s farm in North Brewham, Somerset.
The financier’s 15-year-old daughter, Iris Annabel, died on the farm on Monday afternoon (8 July).
Iris, who is niece of the Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith, is understood to have been riding with a friend on the off-road vehicle.
The vehicle overturned and she became trapped, it has been reported.
South Western Ambulance Service confirmed they had attended the scene.
A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service said: “We were called on Monday at 3.15pm to attend an incident involving a vehicle at an address in North Brewham, Somerset.
“We sent the following resources to attend the incident: an air ambulance crew, a critical care team, a land ambulance crew, and two other paramedics.”
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) says ATVs, such as quad bikes and side-by-side utility vehicles, are designed to cope with a wide variety of off-road conditions, but if used carelessly can very rapidly become unstable.
