The funeral of former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Harry Gregg took place in Coleraine this week.

Gregg, a hero of the 1958 Munich air disaster, died last week aged 87.

He bravely rescued team-mates and other passengers following the plane crash in which 23 were killed, including 8 United players.
