The funeral of a 21-year-old man whose body was found in a reservoir is to take place next week.

The family of Luke Noone told the Lancashire Telegraph that all are welcome to attend with a special request for them to wear a splash of colour.

Luke's aunty, Donna Baldwin said: "We know there are so many people who knew Luke who would like to attend his funeral, and we just ask that anyone who wants to come to wear a splash of colour to reflect his personality.

"He made so many friends in different parts of the country, so anyone who knew Luke and would like to pay their respects are welcome."

Ms Baldwin said the family have been inundated with so many kind words and tributes to Luke since his body was found in a reservoir in Darwen on November 6.

Luke had been missing from Islington, Blackburn, since Tuesday, October 15, and was last seen at around 10pm in Punstock Road, Darwen, that day.

A Go Fund Me page has now been set up in his name to help with funeral costs with the following tribute paid to him: "He touched the hearts of all who loved him, a kind compassionate young man who always had a smile and a hug for everyone he loved, he was an ordinary young man with the biggest heart."

Ms Baldwin added: "Luke was the much-loved son of Ann-Marie, and a much-love brother of Keiley, Caitlan, Joseph, Jack and Kye, and a dearly-loved nephew, grandson, uncle, cousin, and best friend."

Luke's funeral will be held at Pleasington Crematorium on Tuesday November 26 at 2.15pm.

Friends and family flowers are welcome and anyone wishing to make a donation can do so to Street Life, Blackpool; mental health service, Mind, or Luke's Go Fund Me page.
