Minehead rallies to pay for Vern 'the legend's' funeral

A community fund has been set up to help pay for the funeral of a man from Minehead who was known simply as "the legend".

Vern was a regular presence in the town centre and was known for making people laugh.

When local people discovered there was not enough money for more than a basic funeral, they stepped in with a fundraising campaign.

Clinton Rogers has the story.
