The funeral has been held for Workington biker Christopher Peck, who died in Brazil after a crash during a trip of a lifetime.

Around 200 people attended the service at St Mary's Church in Harrington, which was led by the Rev Julia Powley.

The former Royal Navy serviceman's coffin was led into the church by a Royal British Legion standard bearer and carried by loved ones to the song In Loving Memory by Alter Bridge.

Miss Powley told the congregation Mr Peck, 34, was described by his family as "a gentle giant with a wicked, dry sense of humour and a Chewbacca laugh.

"Just the sound of his laugh would make you laugh twice as hard," she added.

Mr Peck's sister Jeanine read the poem Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye, and the service featured Think of Me by Andre Rieu, Sound of Silence by Disturbed.
Mr Peck was carried from the church to Lullaby by Creed.

Cumbrian Newspapers attended the funeral with permission from Mr Peck's family.
