Guildford Four: Gerry Conlon's funeral takes place in Belfast

The funeral of Guildford Four member Gerry Conlon has taken place in Belfast.

Mr Conlon was one of four people wrongly convicted of the IRA pub bombings in Guildford, Surrey, in 1974.

The case was is considered to be one of the biggest miscarriages of justice in Britain, as the four spent 15 years in prison before their convictions were quashed in 1989.

The 60-year-old west Belfast man died in his native city on 21 June, after an illness.

His coffin was carried by members of the Birmingham Six, who were also wrongly imprisoned for a crime they did not commit.

Nicola Weir reports.
