The service at St Paul's Church in Shipley was led by the Rev Malcolm Hendry, who said Issac's death had touched the whole community and beyond.

What a tragedy for everybody. This little lad has touched so many people in and around Shipley as you will see today by the number of people who come. Any death is a tragedy but of someone so young it just compounds that.
