Hundreds of people lined the streets today to pay their respects to nightclubber Sian O'Callaghan.

Wellwishers gathered in the Old Town area of Swindon - where she lived with her boyfriend and was last seen alive - as the funeral cortege passed slowly by with a police escort.

Wiltshire Police asked people to wait in either Bath Road, Devizes Road, Newport Street or Marlborough Road.

More than 500 had gathered in the Old Town area as the procession passed by.

A private service for around 90 close family and friends will follow at Kingsdown Crematorium.
