About 75 people turned out at St Michael's Church, Oulton Broad this morning to pay tribute to Fiona Anderson at a service of thanksgiving for the life of Fiona and her children Levina, Addy, Kyden and Evalie.

The funeral service for the 23-year-old was held almost two months after Fiona had fallen from the Battery Green multi-storey car park in Gordon Road on Monday, April 15.

With the service conducted by Rev Robin Pritchard, he spoke of the 'deep sorrow' felt by Fiona's death.

He said: 'Fiona suffered a profound loss of confidence in herself and in societies' ability to help her. This has been terrible for everyone. We are shocked, feel guilty and are experiencing a sense of terrible waste.
