Hundreds of people have gathered for the funeral of twin brothers who appeared on the Channel 4 reality TV show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.

Billy and Joe Smith were found dead in a Kent country lane in December after a relative discovered a suicide note.

A procession was led by two white horse-drawn carriages through their home town of Sevenoaks.

Mourners kissed the glass of the carriages, which carried identical coffins to St John’s Church.

Inside, the UB40 song Many Rivers to Cross was played, as “requested by the boys,” according to an order of service.
