A MOTHER has spoken of her devastating grief after the unexplained death of her daughter.

Eleven year old Georgia Newnham was found dead in her bed on Monday morning - but coroners still do no not know why she died.

Georgia died at home in Peacehaven - she was not living with her mother Jo Lewendon at the time of her death.

Ms Lewendon, of Hove, was last night waiting to hear the outcome of a second post mortem conducted by a specialist paediatric pathologist in London.

Speaking to The Argus she said: “I just want to know what happened to my beautiful daughter.”

On their last day together Georgia and her mother enjoyed a walk from Saltdean to Rottingdean - holding hands the whole way.

Ms Lewendon said: “Her family all loved her so much.

“She was polite and well mannered and her brothers were always looking out for her.

“Her godmother Lorraine Pietraszko, who Georgia knew as Rainey, and all her family also love and miss her so much.”

Sussex Police are currently treating Georgia’s death as unexplained and her classmates at Peacehaven Community School have been offered counselling in the wake of the tragedy.

Georgia’s older brother Bradlee, 19, paid tribute to his “princess” sister in Wednesday’s Argus.

He said: “ “I don’t know how or what to feel at the moment... in true disbelief and shock. I really don’t wish this on anyone, knowing I’ll never be able to hug my princess ever again.

“Thursday was the last time I said goodbye to her as she set back off home and as she was leaving she was getting embarrassed because her big brother was giving her hugs and kisses. That will forever be my last memory of her and it summed our relationship up to a T.

“I know she will be looking over me.”

Bradlee posted a message on Facebook saying: “I will never forget you Georgia, I can’t wait to see your cute baby blue eyes once again. Lots of love, your big brother xxxxx.”

Officials have yet to confirm to The Argus the reasons for Georgia not living with or being under the care of her mother at the time of her death.

Peacehaven Community School headteacher Austen Hindman said: “We were devastated to hear of the death of a much-loved member of our school community. Georgia had only been a pupil at the school since September 2016 but had already proved popular, well-known for her willingness to help others.

“She was a bubbly girl with a love for art and technology and a keenness to learn.”
