Cricket ball death boy's funeral


The funeral of a schoolboy who died after being hit by a cricket ball has been held in his home town in Dorset.

Kyle Rees, 16, a student at Portchester School, Bournemouth, was struck on the head in the playground last month.

Hundreds of people attended the service, which was held at St Andrew's Church in Bournemouth.

It was followed by a private committal at Bournemouth Crematorium. Portchester School had granted pupils a leave of absence to attend.
