Tributes overwhelm: Joshua Tanuvasa’s funeral will now be held at the Gateway Christian Centre.

An overwhelming number of people paying tribute to Hamilton teen Joshua Tanuvasa has prompted a venue change for his funeral.

Joshuas pastor, Liz Moffitt said that over a thousand people were expected to turn out to Joshua's funeral which will now be held at the Gateway Christian Centre on Victoria Street at 1.30pm on Wednesday.

The family has advised that the carpark will be reserved for family and those participating in the service.

They recommend to park close by in the CBD and expect to walk from there.
