Burnham-on-Sea memorial for drowned Dylan Cecil

A minute's silence has been held at Burnham-on-Sea in memory of Dylan Cecil. The four year-old fell into the sea from the town's slipway a week ago. His mother Rachel McCollum and Darren Cecil joined crowds for a minute's silent reflection in his memory.

The event took place as part of the town's rescue services day. It will be followed by a memorial service at St Andrew's Church.

Ms McCollum's father and Caroline Hall who lost her daughter Lelaina when she became trapped in low-tide mud near Burnham-On-Sea in 2002, spoke to ITV News. For more on this story visit the ITV News West website.
