The funeral has been held of three young children who were found dead in their south Lowestoft home after their mother fell to her death from a multi-storey car park.

The service for Levina, three, Addy, two and 11-month-old Kyden McLelland was held this morning at the Church of St Peter and St John in Kirkley.

The youngsters were found dead on Monday, April 15 at their flat in London Road South.

The discovery of their bodies was made after their mother Fiona Anderson, 23, died after falling from the Battery Green multi-storey car park earlier that day.

During the funeral the songs Songbird by Ronan Parke and I'll see you again by Westlife were played.

After the service the Rev Andrew White said it would take decades for relatives to get over the tragedy and they were taking it one small step at a time.

The father of the three children, Craig McLelland, reportedly did not want his children to be buried with their mother, who was heavily pregnant when she died.
