Funeral for Hagley schoolboy Luke Chapman

A funeral has taken place for a Worcestershire schoolboy who collapsed during a rugby match last week.

Fifteen-year-old Luke Chapman was playing for Haybridge High School in a game against Baxter College in Kidderminster on 20 March.

Pupils from Haybridge High School lined the streets of Hagley as the funeral cortege passed on the way to St John's Church.

About 300 people attended the service at the church in the grounds of Hagley Hall, with another 200 outside, a verger said.
