West Ham themed funeral for mum killed in story which rocked the nation

There will be a West Ham United themed funeral today for a mum who was killed in a story which rocked the nation.

Friends and family will say a final goodbye to ‘beautiful’ mum and big West Ham fan Terri Harris at a Hammers themed funeral after she was found dead at a home in Killamarsh – on the Derbyshire-Sheffield border – last month.

There was dark news recently when another huge West Ham fan, MP David Amess, was killed.

According to West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh, the club will display a photo of Sir David on the big screen before kick-off against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday with an announcement made over the speakers.
