Funeral held for Olivia Downie
Schoolgirl’s coffin carried in horse-drawn hearse
THE funeral of Olivia Downie was a sea of purple as mourners wore the schoolgirl’s favourite colour in tribute.
About 300 people gathered at Fraserburgh’s Old Parish Church yesterday to say goodbye to the seven-year-old.
Olivia was laid to rest in a white coffin, which was carried through the town in a horse-drawn hearse, in a service led by Rev Peter Park.
