Earlier this afternoon (Sunday 18 February) a family fun day was organised by the local community to raise money to support her family.

Organisers say it was a chance for everyone to remember Mylee and celebrate her life.

The father of the eight-year-old, William Billingham, has been charged with her murder and has been remanded in custody.
