BALLOONS filled the skies over Torbay in honour of schoolgirl Izzy Dix.

Two teachers from the school spoke at the Lupton House service. Teacher Mrs Gillard said Izzy loved poetry and was an enthusiastic learner. She said 'She had a love and passion which astounded me'.
Principal Mark Eager said all students and staff also held hands for a period of reflection.
He said: "We are a family. We are a community in every sense of the word and we are a shocked and grieving community and this is important in that grieving process."
Friends wearing bright colours attended the service, many wrote messages for Izzy on balloons with donations going to an anti-bullying campaign after fears that Izzy may have been a victim of cyber bullies before taking her own life.
More than 100 were gathered in the main room with more listening to the service in the garden.

Cyberbullying on the site has been linked to Izzy's death on September 17.
Rupert Callender, of The Green Funeral company, told the people at Lupton: "You are never going to stop suicide and not going to eradicate bullying, but each person here can do something positive."
The trustees of Lupton House, which hosted the service, thanked all the volunteers who helped bring together the tribute to Izzy's life."
Janet Howard, trustee chairman, said: "We were overwhelmed with offers of help. People gave their time in helping to clean the house, brought in homemade cakes, helped on the day with car parking and serving teas and coffees. We just wanted to do the family proud."
Songs at the service included Ed Sheeran's small bump, Adele's Set Fire To The rain, and Wonder Wall by Oasis.

Torbay inspector Adrian Leisk said: "Our involvement is to ensue the safety of the number of people who attended."
