Thousands Turn Out To Pay Respects To Bradley Lowery

Thousands lined the streets of Bradley Lowery’s home town for his funeral today.

The six-year-old Sunderland fan, from Blackhall Colliery, County Durham, died on Friday following a long, hard fight against cancer.

Jermain Defoe, who forged a strong and loving bond with Bradley, joined his family in the cortege.

The service, held at St Joseph’s Church, paid tribute to an “incredible little boy with a huge personality”

His mother summed it up beautifully: “He had a smile so big and beautiful it could brighten any room. A real brave superhero, he left us all too soon.

“He touched the hearts of many – the most inspirational boy. A loving, caring son and brother – a beautiful star.

“Although your time with us was short, you must have a job to do in heaven with the angels as God has chosen you.

“For now my baby we’ll say goodbye. We’ll meet again our superhero high up in the sky.”
