Bradley’s funeral will take place at St Joseph Church, in Blackhall, at 11.15am on Friday.

A statement from the twitter account @Bradleysfight said the funeral is “open to everyone who would like to come and celebrate Bradley’s life and pay their respects to show him how much he was loved”.

Speakers outside will allow anyone who is unable to get into the church to listen to the service and “people can line the streets if they wish to do so”.
