Jade Goody funeral: thousands line the streets of London
The funeral of reality tv star Jade Goody took place today, with thousands of people attending and watching on tv as she was laid to rest at St. John's Church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.
The funeral procession also went through the streets of Goody's home borough of Bermondsey in South London.
Goody's husband Jack Tweed, 21, read a poem to her in church and said: "My life will never be the same without you by my side."
Goody died Sunday 22 March, Mother's Day in the UK from a long battle against cervical cancer.
Her mother attended the funeral, but her children, Bobby and Freddy are on holiday with their father in Australia.
Her new husband Jack Tweed was able to attend the funeral after his sentencing date for an assault case was moved to April 16.
In his poem, read out in the church, he said: "My life will never be the same without you by my side/ Grief almost too much to bear, pain difficult to hide/ But when we look into the sky for the brightest star above/ Bobby, me and Freddie will send you all our love."
He also carried Jade's coffin out of the church.
Her final resting place is being kept secret from the press.
Thousands of people turned out to see the procession, which has notes of another high profile funeral ten years ago: Princess Diana.
