Thousands of people turned out to pay tribute to the former DJ and TV personality Sir Jimmy Savile. The streets leading up to the cathedral were lined with people and the mood was sombre, as the funeral cortege passed there was a dignified applause. Sir Jimmy’s body was carried through in a gold casket, a nod to Top of the Pops presenter’s penchant for wearing gold.
Sir Jimmy Savile will be remembered for not only his larger than life personality but also for his charity work. In particular the work that he did at the Leeds General Infirmary.
Here are some pictures that I took outside the cathedral on Headrow.
Here are a few videos that I shot as well.
