PEOPLE lined the streets of Devizes yesterday to say a final farewell to little Rory Holloran who lost a battle with leukaemia.

Supercars led the funeral procession along London Road and were joined by a fleet of motorcyclists. People clapped and threw single white roses as the cortege passed led by funeral director Paul McDonald.

Rory, four, who should have celebrated his fifth birthday on August 26, was a little lad with a big smile. He loved fast cars and all things outdoors.

He died on July 20 at Charlton Farm Children’s Hospice in Bristol but yesterday his family, friends and other wellwishers made sure he was given a send off he would have enjoyed.

His parents Matt and Hannah said: “Never has there been a braver stronger individual and yet the kindest soul anyone could meet. Rory touched so many people in his time.” His funeral was held at West Wilts Crematorium. Donations to Charlton Farm c/o AP McDonald funeral directors, Devizes.
