Hundreds of mourners have attended the funeral of a woman who was stabbed to death at the supermarket where she worked.

Jodie Willsher, 30, was fatally injured at the Aldi supermarket in Skipton, North Yorkshire on 21 December.

The vicar, Reverend Ruth Harris, said: “We have pink in the flowers, I’ve got pink ribbons on the vestments I am wearing.

“It is just a joy and it is just a sign of another way that Jodie was. She just loved to share things with so many people.

“She was always sharing photographs of Megan [her daughter] and Malcolm [her husband] and herself on Facebook because she just loved life.”
