Trade unionists from across the country will attend the funeral of rail union leader Bob Crow today.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport union said Mr Crow's family have asked for the funeral service at the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium to be private.
But trade unionists, friends and colleagues of Mr Crow, will be invited to line the route of the funeral procession.
The procession will include trade union banners and flags and will end at the cemetery gates.
