The funeral for a Merseyside couple who died during flash floods in Spain has been held.

Kenneth and Mary Hall, from Bootle, were killed when a river burst its banks and flooded a street market in Finestrat, on the Costa Blanca, on 21 October.

The retired couple, who were 72 and 70, had holidayed in the area for 20 years.

The funeral service was held at St. James's Church in Bootle, followed by a service at Thornton Crematorium.

The Halls' close friend Pat Mercer, said the couple were "the most devoted couple you would ever want to meet".

They had three sons, Kenneth junior, Keith, Chris, and a daughter, Carol, who had recently given birth to a granddaughter.
