A public funeral for a seven-year-old girl who was killed will be held at York Minster on 13 February.

The memorial service for Katie Rough will be led by Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu and anyone who attends is being asked to dress smartly with a splash of colour.

Katie died last month after being found with serious injuries in Woodthorpe in York.

A 15-year-old girl has been charged with her murder.

A private family service will be held later on the same day as the public funeral.
