A public funeral has taken place for a baby who died after an incident at the family home in Carmarthenshire, where police later seized two dogs.

The service at Pontyberem's Catholic Church for Eliza-Mae Mullane was followed by a private cremation.

Dyfed-Powys Police said two dogs had been destroyed following the six-day-old girl's death in February.

Parents Sharon John and Patrick Mullane said previously that they would cherish the short time they had with her.
