PC Rathband's brother says public are welcome at funeral in Stafford

"It's our chance to let people who want to come and say goodbye to David respectfully to come to Tixall Road Crematorium the service will commence just before 12 so I'm hopeful that people will arrive at about half past eleven, David will come with the family- it will be a humanist service.

And then it's going to be a private committal and we'll ask for respect that the family get their chance to start their grieving, process at that time so that's when our time starts and people can just respect that we need our time to grieve"
