Grieving mother Lisa Garner has told how she honoured her daughter at her funeral.

Lisa, who has spoken to The News about the tragic death of Payton Sparks, wore a white dress and silver shoes because Payton had been wearing silver shoes on the night she was killed in a road accident.

She said: ‘I don’t think it really hit me, even when we were driving behind the coffin. It was the last present I could give her. She will never get married or have children.’

Lewis Young, 19, of no fixed abode, faces six charges, including causing death by dangerous driving, in connection with the crash and is due to appear in court next month.
