Video: Emotional farewell for cancer-battler Jayden Morrow (6)

By Ben Tucker

The funeral has been held for little east Belfast boy Jayden Morrow who sadly lost his battle against cancer.

The six-year-old died from the rare form of cancer rhabdomyosarcoma on Saturday

Jayden was diagnosed with the condition that develops tumours in the back, head and chest area, when he was just 18 months old. The aggressive form of cancer affects around 60 children in the UK each year.

The boy's funeral took place at Willowfield Parish Church on Wednesday. Scores of mourners dressed as superheroes in a fitting send-off for the little boy.

Champion boxer Carl Frampton, who met young Jayden, was among those to pay their respects.
