A church service has celebrated the life of Gracie Spinks as mourners gathered to pay their respects to the 23-year-old.

Gracie’s brother Tom led the tributes to his sister who he said excelled in her career, loved attending festivals and ‘lived life to the fullest’.

Gracie, who was laid to rest inside a sparkly, purple coffin, was described as a keen animal lover, and the service also heard of her dream of becoming a mermaid.

Horse riders who formed a guard of honour for the 23-year-old equestrian as her funeral procession passed through Old Whittington, are now waiting outside the church listening to the service.
