The funeral takes place today of a West Yorkshire shopkeeper who was killed in a moped accident in Thailand. Bob Leedham ran Something Sweet in Hebden Bridge with his wife Gemma, who was also hurt in the accident on the island of Koh Samui.
His funeral takes place at Halifax Minster. But beforehand his cortege will drive through the streets of Hebden Bridge so customers, fellow shopkeepers and friends can pay their respects. Mr Leedham was an avid Liverpool supporter and everyone is asked to wear something red.
