Fans, family and footballers attend Dalian Atkinson's funeral

Former teammates, friends and fans have paid tribute to a charismatic player, with a smile hard to forget - at the funeral of former Aston Villa striker Dalian Atkinson.

The 48-year-old died after being tasered by police in August, a death which is being investigated by the police watchdog the IPCC.

Today dozens paid tribute to the former Villa star at Telford Crematorium, before a private burial took place.

Police are appealing for help to find a family who have gone missing from the Stirchley area of Telford.

Martynas Norvisas, 24, Leva Stupelyte, 24, and 2-year-old Godie Norvdidia, have not been seen since October 30th 2016.

Officers say it's out of character for the couple not to be either at work or at their home address.

West Mercia Police would like to speak to them to ensure they're safe and well.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
