THE funeral was being held today of a teenager killed in a road tragedy.
The grieving family of 17-year-old Danny Atkinson had urged his family and friends to attend in the clothes they would normally wear when they used to see him.
The funeral was being held at St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Aspley this afternoon.
Danny was well-known round Huddersfield town centre, for he always wore a distinctive red tracksuit which bore his name and a red doorag, a tight skullcap that looks like a scarf.
Danny died early on Sunday, January 29, when a car in which he was a passenger hit a tree and lamp-post on Bradley Road in Bradley.
Another passenger, 17-year-old Jade Rice, of Bradley, also died.
Both lived on Sherwood Avenue, Bradley.
The driver, a 22-year-old Shipley man, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
He is on police bail, pending further inquiries.
Danny adored his two younger sisters, 13-year-old Leander and four-year-old Paige.
Daniel's mum, Linda Adams, and dad, Mark St Hilaire, were joined at the funeral by his grandparents, Clifford and Myra Adams, Colin and Glynis Atkinson and Beryl and Joe St Hilaire.
Also present were Linda's brothers and sisters, Dawn, Richard, Jane, Elizabeth, Alexander and Paul and Mark's brothers and sisters, Colin, Vanessa, Eleanor, Joseph and Christian.
Linda said: "Daniel will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.
"He was such an enthusiastic young man who liked to spend time out and about with his friends."
