A funeral has been held for a 15-year-old girl from Liverpool who died after becoming unwell at a party.

Merseyside Police are still awaiting toxicology test results on Rose Farley, who died on 2 June.

Her funeral service was held in St Mary's Church, Meadow Lane, West Derby, Liverpool.

A statement issued by her family ahead of the funeral said: "The funeral gives us a chance to remember how she enriched so many lives."

The teenager from West Derby became unwell after attending a birthday party at the Silvestrian Social Club in Vauxhall and then died in Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

Two boys aged 17 and 16 were arrested on suspicion of supplying controlled drugs and then released on police bail.

Rose's family, who described her as "bubbly, beautiful, vivacious and popular", requested that donations instead of flowers should be sent to the Alder Hey Hospital Imagine Appeal.

"We are so grateful to everyone who has expressed sympathy, paid their respects or pledged money to the appeal set up in Rose's memory and we would urge people to continue to make donations," said the family.

"In particular we would like thank the staff at Alder Hey, especially those from the bereavement unit whose support and expertise has been outstanding."
