Hundreds of mourners have paid their respects at the funeral of Susan Taylor, who died attempting to swim the English Channel.

The 34-year-old swimmer from Barwell, Leicestershire, collapsed close to the French coast and died while raising money for Diabetes UK and Rainbows Hospice in Loughborough.

Katie Baxter from Rainbows Hospice said: "It was a wonderful service and full of fun as well which you would expect for something for Susan."
