Crowds of people turned out in Leeds to watch as Sir Jimmy Savile's funeral cortege made its way around some of his old haunts, including his old house in Burley.
Hospital porters and other staff members bowed their heads as Sir Jimmy's cortege passed by Leeds General Infirmary, where he had once volunteered as a porter.
DJ Mike Read, just one of the many household names who attended Sir Jimmy's funeral, had a signed card sent from the Bee Gees as he arrived at Leeds Cathedral.
Royal Marines acted as pallbearers as Sir Jimmy Savile's gold-coloured coffin was taken out of the hearse and carried into Leeds Cathedral.
Sir Jimmy's funeral service began as his coffin was carried into Leeds Cathedral.
The funeral service at the cathedral, which can seat up to 700 people, was attended by many of his friends and colleagues, including former Conservative minister Lord Tebbit and boxer Frank Bruno.
Though Sir Jimmy's funeral was a solemn occasion, his fans also celebrated one of Leeds's most famous sons, known for his long white hair, coloured sunglasses and cigars.
While his coffin was on display in Leeds and his funeral service was also held in the city, his final resting place will be in Scarborough, where he spent much of his time. At his request, the coffin will be buried at 45 degrees with a view of the sea.
