Standing room only at 'lonely' WW2 soldier funeral
It was standing room only at the funeral of a soldier who served in World War Two, after an appeal on social media.
Stewart Cooney, 95, who served with the Royal Artillery, died in a care home in Leeds last month.
It was thought he had no relatives, so his carers put out an appeal.
Hundreds attended his funeral, including Royal British Legion standard bearers, a piper and soldiers from his old regiment.
