The funeral has taken place of a Polish couple killed in the Manchester terror attack.

Taxi driver Marcin Klis, 42, and his wife Angelika, 39, from York, had been at the venue to collect their daughters from the Ariana Grande concert.

The couple were among 22 people who died when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a home-made device in the arena's foyer.

The funeral service was a private one at the request of the family.

The couple's family have said they were "grateful" for the messages of support they have received.

A number of fundraising events have taken place, with proceeds going to their two daughters, who are aged 13 and 20.

One JustGiving appeal by friends of the Klis' elder daughter has raised £18,000.
