A helicopter-shaped floral tribute was laid today at the funeral of the pilot who died when he crashed in central London.
50-year-old Pete Barnes died when the helicopter he was flying clipped a high-rise crane attached to The Tower at St George Wharf in Vauxhall.
Family, friends and fellow pilots attended Reading Minster to pay tribute to the father of two.
A red, white and grey floral tribute was laid outside the Minster, carrying a note which said "G-Barnesy".
Flowers were laid on top of his coffin, carried into the Minster by fellow pilots, among others.
He was flying from Redhill Aerodrome in Surrey to Elstree in Hertfordshire but was diverted to Battersea heliport due to the bad weather.
Witnesses described hearing a loud bang and a flash of light as the twin-engine aircraft crashed near Wandsworth Road.
