The procession began outside the Lincolnshire Co-operative Funeral Directors in Eastgate, with an estimated gathering of 300 people following the hearse.

The majority of the crowd wore red Liverpool football shirts, in tribute to Richard who supported the team.

From Eastgate, the procession - consisting of Richard’s friends, family and well wishers - headed down Church Street, Queen Street, through the Market Place and into Northgate before heading to St James’ Church, where Richard’s funeral took place this afternoon.
