An event being held at Lichfield Cathedral today is aiming to help families and parents who have lost a child during pregnancy or afterwards.

The service today will be the fifteenth taking place in the UK this year. Saying Goodbye says the event is open to anyone of any faith. It says the services aim to remember and acknowledge the lives of children lost through poetry, music and discussion.
