HUNDREDS of teenagers turned out today to pay their respect to 19-year-old Shannen Vickers and her gran Pauline Adams, who died in an arson attack on their flat.

Neighbours also lined the streets as the funeral cortege set off from the tower block in Cyprus Street, Bethnal Green, where they lived.

Nicola Vickers, who lost both her daughter and mum in the fire, held hands with her twin sister Paula and nephew Brendan as the cortege set up from Malmesbury.

Family and friends followed the cortege to Our Lady of Assumption Church on Victoria Park Square for a packed out service.
