Reg Dean funeral: hundreds remember Britain's oldest man

Hundreds of people filled St Mary's Church, Wirksworth, for the funeral of Britain's oldest man, Reg Dean.

Members of the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir, which Mr Dean helped established 25 years ago, sang some of his favourite pieces at the service.

The former church minister died at home in the Derbyshire town aged 110 years and 63 days.
