Hundreds bid Tia Sharp 'goodbye' in south London

Hundreds of mourners have lined the streets of south London to pay their respects to 12-year-old Tia Sharp, whose body was found in her grandmother's house.

Students from Tia's school, Raynes Park High, were among those who watched silently as the horse-drawn carriage went past.

Tia's body was discovered in the house in New Addington, Croydon, in August, a week after she was reported missing.

A fellow student's mother Eileen Smythe, Tia's friend Bethany Watford and Andy Hodge, the manager of the community centre near Tia's home, remembered the friendly girl.
