Music by the Beach Boys was played today at the funeral of a fishing boat captain after it sank off the Dorset coast.

David McFarlane, 35, from Weymouth, drowned when the Purbeck Isle was lost almost two weeks ago.

The father of three, nicknamed Farley, was a keen surfer and a well known figure in the fishing community in Weymouth.

His funeral took place at Holy Trinity Church by the Town Bridge on the harbourside in Weymouth.

Mr McFarlane is survived by his parents Colin and Grace, his partner Victoria Huntley and his children Bethany, Caitlin and Hope.

The bodies of fellow crew members Jack Craig, 21, and Robert Prowse, 20, are still missing.

The wreck of the vessel was discovered by survey ship Odyssey Explorer 10 miles south of Portland Bill at a depth of 50m.

Dorset Police have ruled out diving to the wreck to search for Mr Craig's and Mr Prowse's bodies because of "significant safety concerns".

Richard Slee sent this report.
