Funeral On Saturday

Funeral On Saturday

George Best's funeral will be at Stormont and his family are finalising arrangements for what could be the biggest ever seen in Northern Ireland.

Best's body will leave his father's Cregagh Road home at 10am on Saturday morning.

The cortege will then travel the short distance to Stormont where the 11am service in the Grand Hall will be relayed to thousands of mourners.

The sprawling estate, which is home to the suspended Northern Ireland Assembly, was viewed as the most suitable venue as it has previously hosted major open-air concerts.

Afterwards, Best's wish to be buried beside his mother Annie in the hill-top Roselawn Cemetery, overlooking east Belfast, will be granted.
