Tributes paid by family to Captain Sir Tom Moore at funeral service

Correspondent

The family of Captain Sir Tom Moore have described him as a ‘beacon of light and hope to the world’ – as they paid tribute at his funeral service in Bedford.

His coffin, draped in a Union flag, was carried to the crematorium by soldiers from the Yorkshire Regiment, while a second world war Dakota performed a fly past.

Sir Tom, who was 100, died with Covid earlier this month, after raising more than £32 million for the NHS.
