Bobbi Kristina Brown's coffin taken into church

A hearse carrying the coffin of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, has arrived at a church in suburban Atlanta ahead of a funeral service.

The hearse was escorted by two policemen on motorcycles into the car park of St James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta.

Four men dressed in black suits carried the coffin into the church.

Media reports say friends and family are to gather at the church later to remember the 22-year-old.

A police officer stopped vehicles arriving at the church before they were allowed into the car park.

Bobbi Kristina died in hospice care on July 26, about six months after she was found unresponsive in a bath at home.
