The funeral has taken place for a kayaker found dead after a major search in the North Sea.

Dominic Jackson failed to return to Portsoy in Aberdeenshire last month.

His kayak was discovered on the Caithness coast and his body was found in the same area a few days later.

The 35 year-old was laid to rest this afternoon, with family and friends gathering at the Fettercairn Parish Church.

Following his death, Dominic's family set up a campaign to encourage kayakers to carry personal locator beacons at sea.

They've already raised more than £11,000.
