The funeral's taking place later of a firefighter who died while tackling a blaze in Manchester in July.
A service is being held in Bury for Stephen Hunt who lost his life following the incident in Oldham Street.
The union for firefighters has described Stephen Hunt, who died in a fire in Manchester city centre in July, as "hero".
FBU general secretary Matt Wrack said:
Stephen died a hero, and his willingness to put his own life at risk to save and help others deserves to be remembered and honoured.
This sense of courage and self-sacrifice can be found in firefighters across the country, and we are all indebted to the tireless and often unseen work they undertake to keep us safe.
Stephen's death was a terrible tragedy, and firefighters and the union will continue to work with our communities, employers and government to make sure that safety is put first for both firefighters and the general public.
