Family lay hols pool tot to rest.

Byline: RON MOORE

A TRAGIC Scots toddler who drowned in a Spanish swimming pool will be buried in his beloved Celtic top today.

Jordan Hamill, five, from Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow, died while in holiday on Majorca with his gran Sadie last week.

Hundreds of mourners, including his anguished family, friends and neighbours, will pack Wallacewell Parish Church, Balornock, Glasgow, for the service before he is buried in St Kentigern's Cemetery.

Little Jordan, who attended Auchinairn Nursery, had left his gran Sadie for a moment when tragedy struck at the Ola Club Cecilia complex in the resort of Porto Colom, last Monday.

He was discovered in a pool. No lifeguard was at the pool at the time.

Jordan's brave mum Lorraine, 34, called for a safety clampdown at holiday complexes to help prevent other youngsters from perishing.

She said: "Jordan was such a caring wee boy. We will always love him."
