THE funeral of a St Ives man killed in a road accident was held at St Mary's Church, Huntingdon, last week.
Steffan Strickson-Head, 30, of Reynolds Close, died when the BMW he was travelling in left the road at 8.15pm on Thursday, August 3.
There is an ongoing police investigation into the circumstances surrounding the accident.
More than 250 mourners packed the church while flowers were laid outside in tribute, some with messages remembering Steffan.
So many people gathered to remember him that some had to stand at the back of the church while the service was conducted.
After the service, Steffan's body was taken to North Street Cemetery, off Primrose Lane, Huntingdon, for burial.
