Final farewell for Gibb's fans

Fans of late chart star 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.

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

His death drew tributes from across the music world but also from politicians including former prime minister Tony Blair, who was a close friend.

Gibb's glass-sided carriage - in which his coffin will be visible - will be drawn by four horses.

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.

The family asked well-wishers and fans who want to pay their final respects to use the full length of the High Street to avoid congestion.

Gibb's music will form a part of the service. His son RJ has already said that the Bee Gees hit I Started A Joke will be played at the church.

And the track Don't Cry Alone - one of his final compositions from his Titanic Requiem, premiered only weeks before his death - will also be played.
