Hundreds line streets for Sir David Amess’ funeral procession after ’emotional’ service
The Metro says Sir David Amess’ constituents lined the streets of Southend as his coffin was carried in a horse-drawn hearse following his funeral.
The late MP’s casket, covered by a Union flag, was carried out of St Mary’s Church in Southend, Essex – three miles from where he was stabbed to death on October 15.
Hundreds of people gathered outside Southend’s Civic Centre to pay their respects as the hearse, led by four black horses, paused in front of it.
Uniformed police officers formed a guard of honour and bowed their heads as it arrived, with members of the public breaking into applause.
