Football royalty came to West Yorkshire today for the funeral of a coach who helped create one of the greatest teams of the 1990s.

Eric Harrison, who was 81 when he died, was the youth team coach for the Manchester United team which became known as the "Class of 92", and went on to win a League and Cup double and the elusive treble.

Many of that Class of 92 - including David Beckham and their boss at the time Sir Alex Ferguson - were among the mourners.
