Max Bygraves and the Ladybirds singing at a memorial service in London yesterday for the comedian Benny Hill. The service, at St Martin-in-the-Fields, ended like one of Hill's shows, with the congregation chasing each other into Trafalgar Square to the tune of 'Yakety Sax'. Former colleagues attending the service included Patricia Hayes, Dave Freeman, Henry McGee and the Hill's Angels. McGee said Hill, who died of a heart attack at Easter aged 67, was 'a most extraordinary, ordinary man who gave the world's funny-bone a tweak and sent it spinning on its way'.
