A HORSE-DRAWN hearse brought the coffin of former boxer Mark Denton to Hartlepool’s Borough Hall.
Hundreds of people had gathered on the Headland to pay tribute to Mark, 31, and to celebrate his life at the venue which hosted some magical nights in the ring for the talented boxer.
Mark’s life was taken from him when he was killed at a house party in Hutton Avenue, Hartlepool, on New Year’s Eve.
We were invited to the funeral by Mark’s family to capture the moment the town said goodbye to the popular son.
