The funeral of a beautician who was shot dead in a pub on Christmas Eve will be held on Wednesday.

Elle Edwards, 26, was celebrating Christmas with friends when a gunman opened fire just before midnight at the Lighthouse Pub in Wallasey Village, Wirral.

Mrs Edwards’ funeral will be held at St Nicholas’s Church in Wallasey.

In an interview with Sky News last week, her father Tim Edwards said: “She looked beautiful and was a great hugger. She was just an amazing person with a heart of gold.”

Mr Edwards hopes a foundation will be set up on behalf of his daughter to fight gun violence in the region.

Connor Chapman, 22, has been charged with the murder of Ms Edwards and is due to appear in court on June 7.
