Daley Mathison funeral takes place

Hundreds pay tribute to road racer

The funeral of Daley Mathison has taken place in the north east of England.

Hundreds of road racing fans gathered on their machines in the village of Murton - where the 27-year-old was from - for a procession through to Stockton-on-Tees, where he lived with his wife and daughter.

They revved their engines as a mark of respect along the way.

The procession was led in part by a member of the Purple Helmets motorcycle demonstration team.

It ended up at Teesside Crematorium, where the service took place.

Mathison was killed in a crash at Snugborough on the third lap of the Superbike race at this year's TT.
