More than 1,000 mourners were estimated to have turned out to pay their respects to tragic 14-year-old hit-and-run victim Jasmyn Chan this morning.

‘Hero’ by Enrique Iglesias was played over loudspeakers as hundreds of youngsters - many of them Jasmyn’s close friends from Birley Community College - hugged one another and sobbed.

A police escort led the funeral cortege into City Road Crematorium at just after 11am, while a horse-drawn vintage hearse carried the coffin to the service - chosen for Jasmyn’s love of horses.
