A church was filled with laughter as more than 200 people gathered to celebrate the life of actress and former Fylde favourite Dora Bryan at her funeral.

Mourners gathered in Brighton yesterday to remember Dora, who was known for roles in TV’s Last Of The Summer Wine and classic British movies like 1961’s A Taste Of Honey, which was filmed in Blackpool.

Born in Southport, Bryan first came to the Fylde in the late 1940s with her then-fiancé former St Annes Cricket Club professional Bill Lawton.
