IN PICTURES: Sunderland says goodbye to Denise Robertson

Have your say

It was undoubtedly one of Wearside's saddest days as friends, family, colleagues and fans said farewell to Denise Robertson.

The 83-year-old, who charmed viewers for years on ITV's This Morning, was laid to rest today following a service attended by hundreds at Sunderland Minster.

Rest in peace, Denise Robertson.

Rest in peace, Denise Robertson.

Mourners gathered outside the church from this morning, keen to pay their own respects to "Aunt Denise", who has become a part of the lives of so many.

We watched, and reported, as the funeral unfolded, listened as her friends and family spoke, and interviewed some of you as you waited to see Denise pass through Sunderland's street.
