Funeral of Sue Brittain, 1970s female wrestler

The funeral of a woman who fought for the equality of female wrestlers has been held.

Sue Brittain was a professional wrestler during the 1970s, but she often had to fight legal battles outside the ring to ply her trade.

Brittain - real name Majorie Farrar - was filmed in 1979 for the BBC's Look North news programme.

The 76-year-old's funeral was held in her hometown of Pudsey, West Yorkshire.
