A memorial service was held today in London for the Carlisle-born broadcaster John Myers.

The event took place at St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square.

The service was a celebration of John’s life and achievements, after his sudden death at the age of 60 in June this year.

John was a former Border TV presenter and also developed and hosted several radio shows.

Some of the UK's leading broadcasters attended, including BBC2's Jeremy Vine.

He told ITV Border "John gave you a sense of himself, his love of life and his love of radio".
