The tragic triple funeral of a mum and her two sons who died from coronavirus within five days of each other has taken place.

Grandmother Gladys Lewis, 74, from Pentre, South Wales, died at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital on October 29.

Her son Dean Lewis, 44, was found unresponsive at his home in nearby Treorchy the following day and pronounced dead a short time later.

Younger brother Darren, 42, died on November 2 following treatment in intensive care at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital.

All three had tested positive for coronavirus before they died, and their death certificates state Covid-19 as the cause.

On Thursday mourners socially distanced and wore masks as they lined the streets outside St Peter's Church in Pentre, south Wales, to listen to the service through loudspeakers.

The family, who were inside the church, had wanted the funerals held at the same time so they could be together.
