A Wigan schoolgirl who bravely battled cancer for two years has died.
Hope Colley, nine, from Billinge has lost her fight after first being diagnosed with a brain tumour in January 2016.
Just weeks ago St Aidan's Primary School pupil won a competition to turn on the Wigan Christmas lights alongside pop group Union J.
Hope, who has been described as a "normal, happy girl", underwent months of radiotherapy and chemotherapy as well as surgery to try to get rid of the tumour.
She leaves behind her parents and three brothers.
