HUNDREDS of mourners turned out to say a final goodbye to tragic Megan Bills.

The 17-year-old former Ridgewood High School pupil was found dead in a wardrobe, which had been wrapped in clingfilm, in a Dudley hostel in Highgate Road on May 4 this year.

Five agonising months later – her family and friends were finally able to lay her to rest yesterday (Monday October 30) after a funeral service at St James Church in Wollaston where hundreds of people crammed in to say their last goodbyes.

The moving service, which saw spring bulbs given out to those who attended, was followed by a private commital at Stourbridge Crematorium.

Donations in Megan’s memory can still be made via Wombourne Funeral Services.

They will be given to Ocean Conservation Research and Worcestershire’s Forest Dog Rescue as the teenager, who was pursuing a career as a hairdresser, loved dolphins and dogs.

Unemployed Ashley Foster, from Highgate Road, Dudley, has been charged with murdering Megan. He has admitted preventing the lawful burial of the teenager but denies killing her.

He is set to face trial on January 8 next year.
