Hundreds of people have attended the funeral of Wellingborough youngster Niamh Curry.

The brave five-year-old inspired many during her 18-month battle with cancer.

Staff and children from Little Harrowden Primary School waved goodbye to Niamh as her hearse travelled through the village on the way to Kettering Crematorium.

There was standing room only outside the Albert Munn Chapel and hundreds gathered for the cremation and celebration of Niamh’s life.

Her parents, Chris and Samantha Curry, paid tribute to their courageous daughter, reading a poem during the ceremony.
