A memorial service for four siblings who died in a house fire in Stafford has heard moving tributes to the children.
Riley Holt, eight, Keegan Unitt, six, Tilly Rose Unitt, four, and three-year-old Olly Unitt, were killed in a blaze in the Highfields Estate on 5 February.
Today, hundreds of people gathered at St Mary's Church to celebrate their short lives.
Revered Philip Sowerbuttts, who is leading the service, says we want to remember the children in a "hopeful, life-affirming" way:
These children, their lives were cut tragically short and it has been a sadness to all of us in the community. However, we want to remember them in a hopeful, life-affirming way. So that's why in tonight's service we are hoping to do just that, celebrate what was special about these children.
Community members who attended the memorial service were asked to wear brightly-coloured clothing and bring teddy bears.
The children's school choirs sang and both headteachers gave tributes.
Donations have been made in the children's names to several Staffordshire emergency service charities.
Steve Glover, who has helped to organise the memorial, says the community spirit has been really strong:
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
A 24-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man, who were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence, have been released while inquiries continue.
