The funeral of a murdered Grimsby man whose body parts were discovered in waterways across North Lincolnshire has taken place.

Parts of the dismembered body of Adam Vincent, 33, formerly of Alexandra Road, Grimsby, were found at Tetney Lock in March.

Mr Vincent's severed head was found in the River Ancholme, near Brigg, in June.

Six people have been charged in connection with Mr Vincent's death.

A post-mortem examination found that Mr Vincent had died from a traumatic head injury.

His father, Keith Vincent, said the family had not wanted to hold a funeral until all his son's remains had been found.

"Thank God we're going to put him to rest. We've waited six months," he said.

"People have to realise he was a person. He was somebody's son, somebody's brother.

"He was a real person, not just a person who was murdered."
