Memorial service for drowned toddler Dylan Cecil

A "beautiful" child with an "impish smile" that could melt hearts is how four-year-old Dylan Cecil who died after slipping off a jetty, was described at a memorial service.

Reverend Graham Witts led the service for Dylan, who died after falling into the sea while on holiday in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, with his parents Darren and Rachel.

Over 400 people attended the service at St Andrews Church to remember Dylan, whose body was found by a passer-by four days after he went into the water on mudflats, less than half a mile away at sailing club closeby.
