In pictures: Family and friends gather to say farewell to Rosie Darbyshire at her funeral in Preston

The rain didn't stop more than 100 people turning up to Village Drive in Ribbleton, the road in which Rosie Darbyshire grew up.

A highly emotional celebration of the 27-year-old's life started in Ribbleton today, as mourners said farewell to the much loved mum-of-one.

Prior to the funeral, Rosie's sister Alice said: "We want the funeral as colourful as Rosie so we are requesting that all please wear something with colour."
