Watch live: Paul O'Grady's funeral procession in Adlington, Kent

Paul O’Grady’s tragic death following a sudden cardiac arrhythmia shocked the world – and today the eyes of fans were filled with tears as they said goodbye to the TV legend.

The For The Love of Dogs host’s coffin was carried on a horse-drawn carriage, while his followers turned up en masse to pay tribute to him.

Local children from the nearby primary school had created heart-shaped tributes almost as tall as they were, crafted out of felt and studded with illustrations of Paul’s favourite animal – the dog.

The star was known for rehoming several of the canines he came across while filming his hit TV show and nowadays his name is synonymous with animal welfare.
