Celebrating the life of Stephen Sutton with a vigil at Lichfield Cathedral

More than 11,000 have attended a vigil at Lichfield Cathedral in memory of cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton.

Stephen's body arrived to applause at the cathedral just before 19:00 on Thursday.

His body will be taken to a private burial service and people were asked to send the message #ThumbsUpForStephen on social media.

Speaking to the BBC, the Dean of Lichfield, the Very Reverend Adrian Dorber said there was a "touch of the Princess Di syndrome" with a showing of public grief.
