Funeral for Megan

The funeral of Wetherby woman Megan Roberts who went missing in York for over a month will take place on Thursday.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said there will be a strictly private family funeral for the former St John University student at Stonefall Crematorium in Harrogate.

But a memorial service will take place at St James’s Church in Wetherby afterwards.

Mum Jackie Roberts posted on Facebook: “For all who would like to be there, Megan’s funeral service will be Thursday March 13, 2.30pm at St James’s Church, followed by a gathering at the Engine Shed.

“We’ll be having cremation with family only before the service.

“No dress code and bright colours welcome.”

Megan went missing during a night out with friends in York on January 23 and her body was recovered from the River Ouse at Acaster Malbis on March 2 after weeks of extensive police searches in and around the river.
