Tears and smiles for Pierre

There were tears, smiles, and laughter as a community came together today to celebrate the life of a young schoolboy that was cut so tragically short on a holiday island in France.

Twelve year old Pierre Barnes was remembered at a tiny parish church on the outskirts of Grantham just over two weeks after he vanished at the start of his half term holiday. Kate Hemingway reports.
