Town says farewell to Bee Gee Gibb
Hundreds of well-wishers paid their respects to Bee Gees star Robin Gibb as they lined the streets to see his coffin being taken in a horse-drawn carriage.
The 62-year-old singer died from kidney failure last month after fighting cancer and pneumonia.
Onlookers watched as the white, glass-sided carriage - topped with red roses and pulled by four plumed, black Friesian horses - processed through his adopted town of Thame in Oxfordshire.
The cortege was followed by Robin's two Irish wolfhounds, Ollie and Missy, together with friends and family.
In keeping with his long musical career, the horses wore decorative black cloths emblazoned with a gold treble clef and were accompanied by a piper.
They were travelling from Robin's home, along the town's High Street ahead of the funeral at St Mary's Church. It had been Robin's wish to "say a final goodbye to fans and his home town of Thame", according to his family.
Guests followed the cortege on foot from the gatehouse of his estate, including his elder brother Barry - the sole surviving member of the chart-topping group.
Others in attendance included Sir Tim Rice, DJ Mike Read and Uri Geller.
The church is opposite the home which the musician had shared with wife Dwina for 19 years. He will later be buried in the churchyard.
