Tom Parker's wife Kelsey in tears as she leads cortege after his tragic death

Tom Paroker's heartbroken wife broke down today as she led The Wanted star on his final journey.

The singer died last month aged 33 after a brave battle with an inoperable brain tumour.

Tom is being laid to rest today in a private service in Petts Wood, Orpington, attended by his close family and friends.

Devastated wife Kelsey led the cortege, which included three black horses.

She was supported by friends and family as the funeral procession made its way through South East London.

The carriage carrying his coffin featured flowers that spelt out "Daddy" and "Tom".

Handprints of his two children, Aurelia, one, and Bodhi, two, were placed on top of the carriage in a touching tribute.

Tom's The Wanted bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes were also seen fighting back tears as they watched the procession.

They acted as pallbearers as the coffin was taken into the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi while Champagne Supernova by Oasis played.

One Direction star Liam Payne, who played a charity gig for Stand Up to Cancer organised by Tom in September, was also in attendance.
