Grieving financier Ben Goldsmith pleaded for his “little girl back” in a tweet following the teen’s death in a quad bike tragedy on the family farm.

The millionaire posted the message on Thursday, four days after the death of 15-year-old Iris Annabel.

Ambulance crews were called to the Goldsmith home in the Somerset village of North Brewham on Monday afternoon after Mr Goldsmith’s eldest daughter Iris Annabel, 15, was involved in a crash.

Mr Goldsmith tweeted: “Dear God, please can I have my beautiful, brilliant, kind little girl back, please God.

“And if not, please take extra special care of her. I love her so so much and I’m so proud of her. It hurts me so much I can’t describe.”

He and his ex-wife Kate were left “devastated” by the death of their daughter in the quad bike accident, Mirror Online reports.

Kate, 37, was reportedly staying at the country estate when the accident happened. Her ex-husband Ben, 38, was playing in a cricket match in Surrey at the time.

A family friend told a national newspaper: “This is the most awful accident. Iris was a complete firecracker – an absolute delight.

“She was beautiful, charming, intelligent, wonderful company and absolutely the loveliest person you could meet. Ben and Kate are completely devastated.”

Ben was playing a cricket match when he received the call about the accident.

The game was abandoned when Ben sped away from the match with his sons Frankie, 13, and 11-year-old Isaac.

The vehicle Iris was riding with a friend is described as a ‘ranger vehicle’ – an all-terrain buggy with a roll-cage that resembles a cross between a quad bike and a small Jeep.
