Carly and Daniel Beattie


THE funeral for the Scots brother and sister killed in a plane crash in Florida took place today (Thu) at the same church where they were baptised.

Relatives and friends of Carly and Daniel Beattie wept as their wicker coffins were carried into the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Penicuik, Midlothian.

The siblings died earlier this month when the two-seater plane Carly, 21, was piloting came down in a swamp.

Carly’s coffin was adorned with pink and white flowered garlands. The colours were blue and white on her 24-year-old brother’s coffin.

Around 200 people attended the service, with the pews and balcony of the church filled to capacity and many mourners standing throughout the hour-long ceremony.
