A brother and sister from Neston on the Wirral have been speaking of their grief after losing both their parents within days of each other.

James and Rebecca Ryan's father Eric passed away in hospital at the age of 64 - he had cancer.

Just days later Rebecca found the body of her 49 year old mother Lynne on the floor of the family home. Their parents had been married for twenty four years.

Rebecca and James say they haven’t been left with a lot of money after their parents unexpected deaths.

They've launched a fundraising page in an attempt to cover the costs of their funeral, more details here.
