Good Bye Jimmy

Sir Jimmy Savile was laid to rest today at Woodlands Cemetery in Scarborough. The funeral cortege passed through the North Yorkshire seaside town and hundreds of people from the local area lined the route as the gold casket containing his body was driven along the seafront before finally being laid to rest in a plot that looked over the sea.
