Hundreds of mourners have attended the funeral of a Bristol boxing promoter who was found dead after vanishing in Monaco.

Michael Graydon, 29, was on the French Riviera to watch a boxing match but did not attend the bout or arrive at the airport for his return flight.

He was missing for two weeks before his body was found in a deep rock crevice.

Speaking at his funeral at St Mary Redcliffe Church, his father Adrian said he would "always be our champ".

His cousin Fred Little added: "He will be sorely missed. He achieved so much in his short life."

Mr Graydon, who has an 18-month-old son, was last seen alive outside a nightclub. CCTV identified him near a church a short time later but cameras eventually lost view of him.

Police in Monaco used a military bloodhound to trace his scent but the trail ended near the church.

Officials said his death appeared to be an accident.
