Several hundred people have attended the funeral of veteran trade unionist and campaigner Inez McCormack in Londonderry.

The cortege left her home in Belmont Crescent on Wednesday and made its way to the city cemetery for burial.

Susan Davis, chair of the board at Vital Voices said Ms McCormack was "an iconic figure among women leaders worldwide and will be remembered far beyond Northern Ireland."
