The funeral of murdered east Belfast man Reece Leeman will be held on Saturday.

Mr Leeman was found collapsed on Connsbrook Drive after being seriously assaulted on Friday morning (March 15).

Police believe the 21-year-old was stabbed after an altercation at a property on Kyle Street. A 28-year-old man has been charged with murder.

His funeral will take place at St Marks Parish of Dundela on the Hollywood Road on Saturday at 9.15am and afterwards to Roselawn Crematorium at 11am.

A funeral notice read: "Will be sadly missed by his loving Mum, Dad and sister.

"Our son, this is for someone wonderful as loved as one could be, for you were everything in life, you meant the world you see, and sometimes life can be unkind when hearts are torn in two, but nothing ever could compare to the pain of losing you.

"But all the love you left behind forever will live on and so until we meet again, rest peacefully, our dear son. Night, night number one son, forever young, love your Mum and Dad."
