Nearly 300 friends and family gathered in Swindon today for the funeral of one of the two teenaged girls killed in an horrific crash last month.

18 year old Shaya Leigh's car careered off the A419 on the outskirts of the town.

There was an emotional tribute from her Dad Martin who described her as life and soul of the party.

Shaya's ten-year old cousin Zara read a moving poem.
