More than 250 people, many from the local community, attended the ceremony at the chapel, less than a mile from where the schoolgirl’s body had been found.

Seats inside the chapel were reserved for close family and friends, however, the service was broadcast to the community who waited outside the chapel.

In her eulogy, Lucy’s mother described her daughter as someone who “loved, football, cooking and gymnastics”.

Hampshire Police have undertaken a massive operation since Lucy’s body was discovered, with officers handing out leaflets in Southampton to “jog people’s memory” about the hours leading up to her death.

A 24-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder and sexual activity with a child has been bailed.

The same man appeared in court on 31 July charged with withholding information relating to the case by allegedly failing to disclose his Facebook password to police.
