The parents of a toddler who died after being pulled from a car which had plunged into a river say they will celebrate her 'happy life and birthday' when she is laid to rest next week.

Kiara Moore's heartbroken parents say her funeral will take place on Tuesday, on what would have been her third birthday.

Kiara died after being pulled from a car in the River Teifi in Cardigan on Monday.

Her parents, Jet Moore, 40, and Kim Rowlands, 25, are asking mourners to wear colourful clothes and bring children along to make it a 'happy celebration.'

Mr Moore, who has raised over £1,000 for Wales Air Ambulance online, has issued a public invitation to the 'party for her happy life.'

He wrote on Facebook: "Myself, Kim and family would like to invite you all to either the funeral and party for her happy life and birthday! (or just have a thought for her on this day and make some one happy).

"Please bring kids if you can! (we are keeping it a happy celebration).

"The dress code is bright and beautiful and fun only."

The funeral will be held at 3.15pm at Parc Gwyn Crematorium in Narberth, Pembrokeshire.

Dyfed-Powys police say enquiries into her death are ongoing.
