The funeral of former Bristol Rovers FC chairman Denis Dunford, who saved the club from going out of business, has taken place.

Mr Dunford moved the club, which was suffering from financial problems, from Eastville Stadium to a ground share at Bath City's Twerton Park in the 1980s.

A statement from the club said: "We all owe him a great debt of gratitude for keeping Bristol Rovers in business."

The funeral took place at St John's Church in Keynsham on Wednesday.

Mr Dunford stepped down as chairman in 2004 and was appointed as president of the club.
