EBONIE Webb has sadly passed away.

The seven-year-old, who had been fighting a brain tumour since she was just six months old, lost her battle after years of treatment.

Shane Bristoe, who runs the Team Ebonie website, said: "This morning (Tuesday) I was informed that Ebonie had died and become God's newest angel.

"I'm just numb, it's not sunk in that she's gone. Let's take a leaf out of Ebonie's book and remember that she was a inspiration to us all, showing us never to give up in the face of adversity.

"She fought a good fight right to the end."
