Hundreds gathered today for the funeral of Sabrina Moss who was tragically killed in a shooting.

The nursery teacher and mother-of-one from Neasden was shot down while celebrating her 24th birthday in Kilburn High Road on Saturday, August 24.

Her family and friends wore a variety of colours, pink, burgundy, white, black and navy blue at the service held this morning in St Alphage Church, in Montrose Avenue, Edgware.

The young woman's body was laid in white coffin carried by a white horse and cart carriage, decorated with off white flowers.

There was a harrowing atmosphere as Sabrina's mother was escorted into the church by the priest.

Flowers were left outside the church, one message wrote: "Sabrina I can't believe I am writing this I have known you for 12 years and always to be with you girls. Things will be so different. Wish you well in your journey to heaven angel. God bless your soul. RIP. Lots of love, Cassie."

Father Dane Batley-Gladden spoke at the service.

He said: "There is too much of this on our streets, we must send out the message that weapons have no place in our community.

"Sabrina is gone from our sight but she is very much in God's care. In our service we are thinking of her and praying for her. Sabrina's gift of life now continues with God."

Another message left on a bouquet of flowers outside the church said: "To darling Bean, always in our thoughts and prayers. Gina and Johnny McKeon."

Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward and help the investigation.

Speaking at the funeral, Detective Inspector Joe Daly from the Homicide and Major Crime Command said: "Shootings in London are rare and these are tragic circumstances for family and friends and the other victims of the shooting.

"So far we have received an excellent response from the public. One person has been charged but today we are making a further appeal for people to come forward, we still believe there are people out there who know the identity of further suspects.

"We know that there were a large amount of people out on Kilburn High Road in the early hours of August 24, there are members of the public who would have heard or seen something."
