Family and Friends Attend Funeral of Gary Speed

The private funeral for Leeds Legend Gary Speed took place in Wales today.

The service of the former Sheffield United player and manager took place this morning.

Friends and family said their final goodbyes.

A public memorial service for the Wales boss is being planned for the New Year.

A spokesman for the LMA said: "At this time, Louise Speed and her family wish to express their deep appreciation for the very generous and clearly heartfelt tributes paid to Gary.

"She is also acutely aware how Gary touched the lives of so many people and that each of them would wish to thank him for the joy he brought to them."

Speed, who also played for Newcastle and Bolton, was found hanged at his Cheshire home last month.
