Funeral of Jamie McMahon Friends and family wrote tributes in marker pen on Jamie McMahon's coffin

A funeral has been held for a snooker club worker who was killed while walking through a churchyard.

Jamie McMahon, 26, was found outside St Giles Church, Northampton, in October.

About 300 people lined the driveway of Counties Crematorium in the town earlier as a Volkswagen camper van brought in his white coffin.

Two men have been charged with murder and robbery. A further four people have been bailed on suspicion of handling stolen goods.

Police think Mr McMahon was attacked on his way home while taking a shortcut.

The Coopers Snooker Club worker had been out in pubs and clubs on the night of 1 October and was last seen in the York Road area shortly after 02:00 BST the following day.

Mr McMahon's body was found by a passer-by just before 08:00 BST. He had suffered head injuries.
