News: Ken Dodd's Funeral Takes Place

Ken Dodd's funeral has taken place in Liverpool. 

Fans paid their final respects to the comedian on the route fom his home in Knotty Ash to Livepool Cathedral. A floral Diddyman was propped up next to the coffin.

Dodd died at the age of 90 earlier this month.
