- Tyne Tees
The funeral is taking place today of a long-serving priest who baptised all four of Tony Blair's children. Father John Caden, who was known as Father Jack, died last month at the age of 90. He had been a Priest for 65 years.
Father Caden counted many stars among his friends even buying President George Bush a drink when he visited Sedgefield in 2003.
