Hundreds of people, both local and from the world of music have gathered at a church in Somerset to say farewell to jazz legend Acker Bilk.

Today's thanksgiving service at Publow Church included the reading of a poem Acker wrote, reflecting his love of the area he grew up in.
The River, by Acker Bilk
Although not a big river,
T'was endless to me.
We dived in it, swam in it,
Fished it with glee.
We floated log rafts on it,
Watched all the while
By Herons and Kingfishers,
Ducks, single file.
Martins dipping and diving
The Swifts flying free,
Water rats dunking like biscuits in tea.
Reeds full of Moorhens
And a bit further out,
Where the current flowed swifter
Those gold-bellied trout.
The trees on the banks
Were there just to be climbed.
Elbows and knees skinned
But we didn't mind.
A thousand and one things
To see and to do.
A magical place was the old river Chew.
The days of my youth
Not numbered or planned,
I go back to the river whenever I can

Ian Anderson, the frontman of legendary classic rock band Jethro Tull, has made an emotional Facebook plea to fans to stop following him after shows and frightening his wife.
The 67-year-old musician, who lives on a 400-acre 18th century estate in Minety, Wiltshire, made his comments on the band's official Facebook page.
"That you may only be a fan seeking autographs, whether for yourself or Mr Ebay is not the issue. My hotel is my sanctuary. You frighten my wife and put me under pressure to react to potential violence.
"Stop and think: if you were on your way home from work, late at night, and you became aware of a car or two following you to your home in the dark, you would get worried and understandably probably lock your car doors and call the cops.
"PLEASE DON’T DO THIS."
The singer, flautist and guitarist, who was awarded an MBE in 2007 for his services to music, also said he had received threats of violence.
