Fans in final farewell for Our 'Enry.

MOURNERS lined the streets to pay their respects to heavyweight boxing champion Sir Henry Cooper.

Fans travelled from across the UK to Oxted, Surrey, to watch Sir Henry's cortege make its way to his funeral service at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Tonbridge.

'Our 'Enry, died aged 76 earlier this month.

The former British, Commonwealth and European champion knocked down the unstoppable Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, in 1963.

Among the congregation were Kevin Keegan, Bruce Forsyth and Sir Terry Wogan.
