Hundreds of firefighters, family and friends are expected at a memorial service for firefighter Stephen Hunt.
It's exactly a year since the 38-year-old died battling a blaze in the Northern Quarter, Manchester.
The service, taking place at St Ann’s Church in St Ann’s Square, is open to the public but due to limited space will also be broadcast on speakers outside. Hundreds are expected to attend.
Stephen was one of 60 firefighters called to tackle the huge blaze at Paul’s Hair World.He got into difficulties and was pulled from the building, but was later declared dead.
