Hundreds line the street to say goodbye at funeral of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel

Mourners were asked to wear a splash of pink for funeral of murdered schoolgirl Olivia.

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Knotty Ash on Thursday for Olivia Pratt-Korbel’s funeral.

Olivia was fatally shot in the chest when a gunman chased another man into her house on Kingsheath Avenue, Dovecot, on August 22, and opened fire.

Her funeral service was held at St Margaret Mary’s Church where mourners were asked to wear pink, in honour of the nine year old’s favourite colour.
