THE funeral of Littleport Primary School pupil Joshua Hinchliffe took place today (Thursday).

Dozens of mourners gathered at St Mary’s Church in Southery to pay their respects to the eight-year-old, who lost his three-year-battle with cancer earlier this month.

The funeral procession was followed from Joshua’s home to the small village church by a line of Landrovers and tractors, vehicles which the 8-year-old loved from watching his father Peter at work.

The grounds outside the church were awash with flowers and wreaths, many of them shaped like Joshua’s favoured Landrover.

Joshua died on October 3 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Joshua’s mum Janette said he was “an amazing character whose loss would always be felt.”
