Funeral for 'little princess' Katie Bogle struck by car
A "beautiful little princess" tragically killed in a car accident will be laid to rest this afternoon.
Katie Bogle (5) was playing on her scooter close to her home in Irvine Park in Bangor when she was hit by a vehicle last Thursday.
She died from her injuries after being taken to hospital.
The town was left shocked by the death of the child, who was described in tributes as a "beautiful little princess".
Ards and North Down mayor Alan Graham said the death had hit the community very hard and that his thoughts and prayers were with Katie's family at such a heart-rending time.
"The loss of a child is one of the most tragic and painful situations imaginable," he added.
Katie's funeral will take place today at First Bangor Presbyterian Church before burial at Clandeboye Cemetery in the town.
