The funeral of a schoolgirl whose death prompted police to issue a warning about social media posts will be held next month.

Nyah James, 14, was found at her home in Blaenymaes, Swansea, on 6 February. South Wales Police is not treating her death as suspicious.

An obituary notice from her family said she "tragically…. fell asleep".

Nyah's funeral will be held at Swansea Crematorium on 3 March.

Following the Bishop Gore School pupil's death, police said: "We would urge young people to be responsible when posting online and think about the consequences of your messages and how they may impact on others."

She was described as a "beautiful vibrant" child with her whole life ahead of her by her family.
