Fans to pay last respects to Robin Gibb in procession

Thursday June 7, 2012

Fans of late singer Robin Gibb will have a chance to pay their final respects when his horse-drawn carriage travels through the town he called home before his funeral.

A service is due to take place on Friday at St Mary's Church in Thame, Oxfordshire, close to the property in which the Bee Gees singer lived for many years.

Robin died from kidney failure last month after fighting cancer and pneumonia and suffering from a serious bowel condition.

In a statement, his family said that "at his wish, he will say a final goodbye to fans and his home town of Thame, Oxon, this Friday prior to the funeral".

The carriage will leave from Priests End in the town at around 1.30pm and travel along the High Street to the town hall. It will then return through the High Street to St Mary's Church.
