A Leeds mum has appeared on the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire Show after raising funds for the Bradley Lowery Foundation at her children's school.

Pupils at Lane End Primary School in Holbeck donned football shirts in memory of six-year-old Bradley, who died of cancer last week, after Sarah Elliott arranged a non-uniform day.

Her son Harrison Johansen, seven, and 18-month-old daughter Savannah Elliott both wore their Leeds United shirts on the day.

Sarah was interviewed live by Victoria at 10.30am on Friday morning and told the presenter:

"To see the kids' faces, it was amazing, they were all so excited. The kids and the teachers all took part."

Bradley lived in County Durham and his funeral will take place at a Catholic church in his home village of Blackhall Colliery today. Bournemouth and England footballer Jermain Defoe, who befriended Bradley during his time with Sunderland, is expected to attend after flying back from a pre-season training camp in Spain.
