Stephen Sutton gets social media send-off

Thousands of people have paid tribute to the cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton on the day of the 19-year-old's funeral.

More than 11,000 people attended a vigil at Lichfield Cathedral, where his coffin had lain for two days.

Members of the public also took part in a social media "thunderclap", posting photos of themselves doing a thumbs up pose, with the message #ThumbsUpForStephen.
