A funeral is taking place in Leeds today for one of five people killed in a fatal crash in the city last month.

Robbie Meerun, 24, from Potternewton, died when the car he was travelling in crashed in Stonegate Road, Meanwood, on November 25.

Brothers Ellis Thornton-Kimmitt, 12, and Elliott Thornton-Kimmitt, 14, were also killed along with Darnell Harte, 15, and 24-year-old Anthony Armour.

Funerals for the other four victims took place earlier this month.

A 15-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, has admitted five offences of causing death by dangerous driving.
