Heartbroken Family Of Four Children Killed In Walkden House Fire Finally Lay Them To Rest

The funeral of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia has taken place today.

The four siblings began their final journey from Jackson Street where the tragedy happened in December last year and the procession made it's way through Walkden to St Paul's Church.

Around two hundred family and friends followed the coffins which were carried through Walkden in horse drawn hearses.

The firefighters who attended the blaze back in December stood to attention as the children were carried past them.

Demi, who was the eldest child aged 15, was carried by classmates from Harrop Fold School where she studied.

There was then a private service inside where tributes were paid by family and friends. Hundreds of members of the community gathered outside the church to listen to the service which was broadcast on loud speakers.

The children were then carried out of the church and taken away in the hearses they arrived in.
