The funeral has been held of three young children who were found dead in their south Lowestoft home after their mother fell to her death from a multi-storey car park.
The service for Levina, three, Addy, two and 11-month-old Kayden McLelland was held this morning at the Church of St Peter and St John in Kirkley.
The youngsters were found dead on Monday, April 15, at their flat in London Road South.
The discovery of their bodies was made after their mother Fiona Anderson, 23, died after falling from the Battery Green multi-storey car park earlier that day.
During the funeral the songs Songbird by Ronan Parke and I’ll See You Again by Westlife were played.

No date has been set yet for Miss Anderson’s funeral.
An inquest heard in April that post-mortem examination results on Levina, Addy and Kayden had not determined their cause of death and further tests were needed.
Police have said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with their deaths.
