Jonny died suddenly in March and tributes have poured in from all over the world ever since. The father-of-two lived in Beeston, but grew up in Calverley, where his father was a vicar.

Fellow buskers have held public performances in Leeds city centre in his honour.

Jonny was also a committed social activist who was involved in the Keep Streets Live campaign in support of buskers' rights.
