A public funeral has taken place for a baby who died after an incident at the family home in Carmarthenshire, where police later seized two dogs.

The service at Pontyberem's Catholic Church for Eliza-Mae Mullane was followed by a private cremation.

Dyfed-Powys Police said two dogs had been destroyed following the six-day-old girl's death in February.

Parents Sharon John and Patrick Mullane said previously that they would cherish the short time they had with her.

Officers were called to Eliza-Mae's home shortly before 08:30 GMT on 18 February.

She was flown to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff but doctors were unable to save her.

The cause of her death is not yet known and police have not given any details of her injuries.

Forensic tests of the family home have been completed and the investigation has been passed to the coroner.

Family and friends attended the service in Pontyberem
