The last remaining member of the Bee Gees trio, Barry Gibb, paid an emotional tribute to his brother Robin's "magnificent mind and beautiful heart" at his funeral today.

Barry Gibb's voice broke as he told the congregation at St Mary's Church in Thame, Oxfordshire:

"Life is too short. In Robin's case, absolutely too short.[...] We should have had 20, 30 years of his magnificent mind and his beautiful heart."

Referring to his other brother Maurice Gibb he added:

"They were both beautiful. And now they are together. They're actually together."
