A memorial service to celebrate the life of former England and Kent cricket captain Mike Denness has been held at Canterbury Cathedral.

Denness, the only Scotland-born cricketer to have captained England, died of cancer in April aged 72.

He played for Kent from 1962 until 1976 and was named as the club's president for 2012.

Denness, who also had a brief spell playing for Essex, was awarded an OBE in the New Year's Honours List.

Following his retirement as a player, he later became a match referee for the International Cricket Council.
