HUNDREDS of mourners were expected to pay their respects today to a seven-year-old girl shot dead with her father.

The funeral for Toni-Ann Byfield and her father Bertram, who were gunned down at a London bedsit last month, was taking place at a Birmingham church where Toni-Ann used to attend Sunday school.

Toni-Ann was in the care of Birmingham social services at the time of her death. Her mother, Roselyn Richards, has appealed for help to hunt down the killer.
