Gary Speed to be laid to rest

A private funeral for the Wales Football Manager and ex-Everton player to be held in North Wales

The 42 year old was found dead in his home in Chester last week after taking his own life.

During the inquest into his death, the coroner heard how his wit Louise had found his body and called the ambulance service for advice on what to do.

On Friday a private funeral service will be held for families and close friends in North Wales.
