Family and friends gathered for the funeral of George Lane Fox, founder of the Bramham Horse Trials, which are held at his estate near Wetherby.

Mr Lane Fox was the ninth generation of his family to live at Bramham Park and started Bramham Horse Trials in 1973.

He had followed his father Joe into the Household Cavalry and, after 20 years service, returned home to continue the restoration work of the Park, started by his mother Marcia after the Second World War.
