Friends and family said their final farewells today at the funeral of Suzanne Blamires, 36.

Almost 100 mourners gathered at St Colomba’s Church, Tong Street, Bradford, for a full requiem mass, before burial at Bowling Cemetery.

Parish Priest Father Frank Smith, leading the service, described Miss Blamires as “cheeky, full of confidence, outgoing”.

He said: “Her dad Norman was wrapped around her little finger.”

Miss Blamires’ mother Nikki read a poem she had written about her daughter and hymns included All Things Bright And Beautiful.

The coffin was carried out of the church to the sound of Angels, by Robbie Williams.

Criminology student Stephen Griffiths, 40, is charged with murdering Miss Blamires, of Allerton, between May 20 and May 25. He is also charged with the murders of two other women – Shelley Armitage aged 31, also of Allerton, and 43-year-old Susan Rushworth, of Manningham.

All three women worked as prostitutes in the city.
