The funeral has taken place of Donnacadh Maguire in Derry/Londonderry.

The 6-year-old was found lying on the road outside his Tyrconnell Street home with serious head injuries before passing away in Alnagelvin Hospital on Tuesday.

Mourners gathered earlier today at St Eugene's Cathedral in the city to hear the little boy compared to the Power Rangers he loved.

Donnacadh's parents and brother and sister led the cortege behind his tiny white coffin.

Pupils from St Eugene's Primary School paid a tribute to their young friend.
