Funeral of David Frost

Friends and family of David Frost attended his funeral and paid tribute to the veteran broadcaster on Thursday.

Among those at the service at Holy Trinity Church in Nuffield, Oxfordshire, were Stephen Fry and Alastair Campbell.

Frost, 74, died on the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship where he was giving a speech.

Known for his incisive interviews, Frost spent more than 50 years as a television star. His big break came during the 1960s when he co-created and hosted That Was The Week That Was.

Another of his early programmes was The Frost Report.
