The funeral of Daniel Pelka, the four-year-old who died after an horrific campaign of abuse, has taken place in Poland.
Daniel was beaten, starved and poisoned by his mother and her partner, who hid the abuse by claiming he had an eating disorder.
The funeral was held in the city of Lodz, where Daniel's father Eryk Pelka lives.
His body was carried in a white coffin and framed photographs of the little boy were held up during the service.
London-based funeral director Artur Galla - who has no connection with the Pelka family - reportedly helped arrange and pay for Daniel's repatriation after his family struggled with costs.
His body had been kept in a UK mortuary since his murder in Coventry last year.
Daniel's mother Magdelena Luczak and her partner, Mariusz Krezolek, were jailed last month for a minimum of 30 years.
The four-year-old was left in his room to die for around 33 hours after he suffered a head injury in March last year.
During the trial, medical experts said Daniel's emaciation was "unprecedented" in Britain and likened him to a concentration camp victim.
He weighed just over a stone-and-a-half when he died.
The court heard he was forced to scavenge for food at school - from other children's lunch boxes, from the playground or from rubbish bins.
His death prompted a serious case review by Coventry's Safeguarding Children Board.
The review will examine why police and social services failed to get involved after staff at Daniel's school - Coventry Little Heath Primary School - noticed bruising on his neck and what appeared to be two black eyes.
