Leeds toddler’s funeral a colourful affair

Angel Pitts.

Have your say

Mourners dressed in animal onesies as they said their last goodbyes to a toddler who died when she was accidentally hit by her dad’s car.

Sixteen-month-old Angel Pitts suffered fatal injuries when she was struck by the vehicle as it reversed outside the family home on Cromwell Mount in Belle Isle on June 14.

Her parents, Megin and Scott, had called for all those attending the service at Cottingley Hall Crematorium yesterday (June 26) to wear animal onesies and bright colours in her memory.

Many did so as bright pinks, yellows, and oranges replaced the customary funereal black.

Mr and Mrs Pitts followed her horse-drawn hearse – carrying flowers spelling her name – on a three-mile walk to the crematorium from the family home.

People around the world are marking Earth Hour this evening. People in Britain are expected to join in at 8.30pm... and then they will switch their clocks forward tonight as British Summer Time begins.

Get ready to turn your clocks forward... but before that expect things to get much darker
