The service will take place today at St Mary the Virgin Church in the Cheshire village between 9am and 10am, a week on from the tragedy that "rocked" a community.

Three bodies have been recovered in the search of the wreckage at the Wood Treatment Limited plant in Cheshire.

Derek Moore, 62, has been identified as one of the victims.

A prayer notice said: "It will be a chance for us to pray for our community and the families of those affected, an opportunity to share and support one another, and a time to reflect on the tragic events of the past week."
