Only Fools and Horses stars Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst were amongst the mourners at the funeral of actor Roger Lloyd Pack in central London today.
Mr Lloyd Pack, who had a home near Fakenham, and is best known for his role as Trigger in the popular BBC sitcom, died of pancreatic cancer last month, aged 69.
John Challis, who played Boycie, and his on-screen wife Sue Holderness, also attended the service at St Paul’s, Covent Garden.
His daughter, actress Emily Lloyd, led the service.
Nigel Havers, Stephen Rea, Miranda Richardson, Alison Steadman, Kathy Burke and Joely Richardson were among the many stars to pay tribute to an actor whose career spanned more than 40 years.
Mr Lloyd Pack fell in love with Norfolk and moved to a village close to Fakenham after working at nearby Melton Constable Hall on the film The Go Between in 1970.
He went on to support many local ventures including Sheringham Little Theatre and Creative Arts East, of which he was patron, and was a popular character in his local community.
Mr Lloyd Pack died on January 15.
