The families of a young couple from South Tyneside killed in the Manchester terror attack have thanked the local community for their support.

Liam Curry, 19, and Chloe Rutherford, 17, both from South Shields, were among the 22 people killed in the terror attack on the Ariana Grande concert last month.

A joint funeral was held for them at St Hilda's Church in South Shields on 15 June 2017. In a statement they thanked 'everyone' from the town who had helped 'send Liam and Chloe on their way to a new chapter.'
