The father of Liam Sweeney, who was killed in the Malaysia Airlines plane disaster in Ukraine, has said his son's funeral will be a celebration of his life.

Barry Sweeney paid tribute to the support he had received from friends and Newcastle United Football Club, which held a minute's silence for his son and fellow fan and victim John Alder, ahead of the team's match against Manchester City on Sunday.
