Manchester canal death victim Charlie Pope's funeral held
The funeral of a student found dead in a Manchester canal has taken place in his home city.
Charlie Pope's body was discovered during an underwater search of the Rochdale Canal on 2 March.
Those mourning the 19-year-old from Ponteland, Northumberland, were asked to "wear a splash of yellow to brighten the day".
Balloons were released at the end of the service at English Martyrs RC Church in Newcastle.
The Manchester University social sciences student, who was living in West Didsbury, went missing after becoming separated from friends.
His father, Nick Pope, has backed a petition calling for safety railings to be put along the waterways in Manchester, which has so far been signed by more than 46,000 people.
