A FUNERAL procession and service has taken place in York for 17-year-old Meylie Nesham who died in a motorcycle collision earlier this month.

Dozens of mourners attended Foxwood Lane to pay their respects as a horse drawn carriage and other vehicles passed.

Floral tributes were laid around a lamppost in Foxwood Lane, the scene of the tragedy on August 3.

Among the tributes was a note which read: “Fly high Meylie, u will be missed.”

Another said: “Some boy u was.”
