HUNDREDS of people on foot and on motorbikes turned out for an emotional goodbye for one of their own. 

The funeral of John Mansfield, 67, known as Honky, took place on Friday, March 9, and saw hundreds of his friends and family either take part in or watch a procession go through the town. 

A video taken shows the procession leading to Sedgemoor Crematorium. 

Police escorted the procession along Wills Road, Taunton Road, and Bristol Road before finishing at the crematorium on Red Lane.

Mr Mansfield was a keen motorcycle rider and had been doing it for most of his life. 

A group then returned to the Old Market pub, Penel Orlieu, formally known as the Blue Boar, to celebrate his life.
