THE funeral of a teenager stabbed to death in Blackpool was held today.

Hundreds of family and friends of Sasha Marsden packed into St Chad’s Church, in Poulton, to say a final goodbye to the 16-year-old.

And her friends - many of whom had dressed in pink, Sasha’s favourite colour - wept as the teenager’s pink coffin was carried into church.

Sasha’s body was discovered in an alleyway at the back of The Grafton House Hotel, on Kirby Road, South Shore, last month.

She suffered up to 100 stab wounds to her head and face before being set alight.
