The funeral of a seven-year-old boy who died after being seriously burned in Aberdeen has been held.

Preston Flores suffered burns to much of his body in an incident in Bedford Avenue earlier this month, believed to involve petrol.

He later died in hospital.

The funeral took place at St Stephen's Parish Church from 12:30. Those attending were asked to wear bright clothes and football colours.

His mother Louisza earlier said the family's "precious little boy" had passed away.

"He meant the world to his family and will always be deeply missed and loved," she said. "Preston was a special little boy and his loss has ripped our family apart."

Preston was a pupil at Sunnybank School.
