Former pupils: Ann Maguire 'taught me to be who I am'

Two generations of the same family fondly remembered Spanish teacher Ann Maguire ahead of her funeral later today.

Mum Kathleen first met Mrs Maguire when she began Corpus Christi Catholic College at the age of 11.

Her 26-year-old son Michael told Good Morning Britain he became a teacher because of "Mrs Maguire's influence" and Kathleen's 19-year-old daughter Siobhan said the Spanish teacher gave her "self belief".
