The funeral of Winnie Johnson - the mother who had to deal with the unimaginable grief of her son being killed by the Moors murderers has taken place in Manchester today.

Because her son Keith Bennett's body was never found, Mrs Johnson spent 48 years of her life trying to find out where Ian Brady and Myra Hindley buried him on Saddleworth Moor.

But as the service today reflected, her many friends and family will remember her for so much more.
