Funeral of Elle Edwards taking place today

The funeral of Elle Edwards will be held today (Wednesday, January 25). The 26-year-old beautician died after a gunman opened fire at the Lighthouse pub in Wallasey Village, Wirral, shortly before midnight on Christmas Eve.

The funeral will be held at St Nicholas’s Church in Wallasey. In an interview with Sky News last week, her father Tim Edwards said: “She was beautiful looking and she was a great hugger. She was just a fantastic human being with a heart of gold.”

Mr Edwards hopes a foundation in his daughter’s name will combat gun violence in the region.

Connor Chapman, 22, has been charged with murdering Ms Edwards and is due to go on trial on June 7.
