Birmingham Crash: Huge crowds at funeral for taxi driver

Huge crowds attended the funeral of Imtiaz Mohammed, a taxi driver who was among the six victims of a crash in Birmingham.

A hearse, filled with flowers, brought the body of the 33-year-old to Birmingham's Central Mosque after Friday prayers.

Mr Mohammed's family paid tribute to him after his death, with younger brother Noorshad Mohammed describing him as a "happy, loving and friendly guy", who was "always smiling".

After the funeral and burial, mosque chairman Muhammad Afzal said: "It was a very peaceful and sobering service."
