North East turns out in force to pay respects to ex-Newcastle United, Middlesbrough and Republic of Ireland manager and England World Cup winner Jack Charlton
The former Republic of Ireland, Newcastle United, Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday manager died earlier this month aged 85.
Crowds began to gather in Charlton's home town of Ashington in Northumberland early on Tuesday morning ahead of a private family service in Newcastle.
The funeral cortege passed through the town where he and his brother Sir Bobby spent their formative years.
Charlton was also being remembered in Ireland - the country he led to the 1988 European Championship and the 1990 and 1994 World Cups. The Football Association of Ireland called on Republic fans to wear green in memory of Charlton.
Applause broke out as the cortege made its way through Ashington.
The pallbearer walked in front of the cars for a couple of hundred yards before the cortege travelled back to Newcastle for a private service at West Road Crematorium.
