Funeral For Popular Hampshire Girl

Hundreds of family and friends have said a final goodbye to a popular Havant teenager.

18-year-old Nadine Blake died after complications from cystic fibrosis. She had helped to raise thousands of pounds for Southampton General Hospital, making friends with celebrities like Peter Andre and the cast from The Only Way Is Essex.

Around 100 vehicles were expected to follow the cortege through Havant after it left her family home on Calshot Road. Friends and family gathered to pay their respects at Warblington Church before travelling to the wake in Jessie Road, Bedhampton.

Her dad Carl told Capital FM: "She was so brave and strong. She was always smiling and never moaned about anything she had to go through, I couldn't have done that.

"She arranged everything that she wanted for her funeral before she passed, she wanted two white horses and a pink casket, so we have done everything she asked."

Lanterns and balloons will be released in Nadine's memory by friends in Warren Park on Sunday evening.
