Coffin

12:28pm 8th November 2011

The coffin of broadcasting legend Sir Jimmy Saville is on public display, ahead of his funeral.

His body is lying in state at the bar in the Queen's Hotel in Leeds, where people are invited to pay their respects.

True to his final wishes fans can troop past his coffin.

He will have a cathedral funeral and will then be buried in Scarborough on Thursday at a 45 degree angle so he can see the sea.

The DJ and broadcaster died on October 29th, aged 84.
