Well-wishers expected to ‘line the streets’ tomorrow for funeral of Kim, 29


Well-wishers are expected to ‘line the streets’ in memory of a 29-year-old mum.

They will be in Smallthorne to pay their respects to Kimberley Deakin following her death on November 6.

Current coronavirus restrictions mean only 30 mourners are allowed to attend the funeral service which will take place at St Saviour’s Church, in Smallthorne, at 2.15pm on Monday, November 30.

Two fund-raising appeals set up in memory of Kim have now raised more than £10,000.

In a Facebook post, a family friend said: “The family has asked if people could be in the streets leading towards the church – with social distancing observed – as Kim passes on the day of the funeral.”

It comes as an inquest has now been opened and adjourned into Kim’s death.

Emergency services had been called to her home in Leigh Street, Burslem. She was admitted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital, but died a short while later.

The inquest has now been adjourned until January 19.

Lewis Crofts has appeared at Birmingham Crown Court charged with the mother-of-one’s murder. The 39-year-old, from Dorset, has been remanded in custody.
