Reverend pays tribute to Sadie Rose

Over 600 mourners have turned out for the funeral of a little girl from North Yorkshire who died from a rare form of childhood cancer.

The small pink coffin of Sadie Rose Clifford was taken to St John's Baptist Church in Knaresborough for her funeral service this morning. Mourners were asked to wear coloured clothes in celebration of the joy that Sadie brought to her family.

She died from neuroblastoma last week after thousands of people were inspired to raise money to sponsor her treatment in America.
