Roger Hunt Funeral in pictures

Liverpool Football Club said farewell to former legend ‘Sir’ Roger Hunt on Thursday.

Hundreds of fans gathered at Anfield as the funeral cortege paused outside the ground ahead of a service at the Anglican Cathedral at 11am.

Hunt’s wife Rowan, children David and Julie, stepchildren Katie and Wayne and extended family were joined by about 400 mourners, including Liverpool legends Roy Evans, Kevin Keegan, Ian Callaghan and Ian Rush.

The coffin, draped in a red Liverpool flag, left the cathedral as the club’s anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone played before heading to a private ceremony at Anfield Crematorium.
