British actress Dora Bryan was laid to rest in her adopted Brighton, England on Wednesday (06Aug14).

Hundreds of mourners gathered at St George's Church in Kemp Town to say farewell to the beloved Carry On movies star, who died on 23 July (14), aged 91.

The highlight of the service came when her son, Daniel Lawton, delivered a touching eulogy, during which he called him late mum "a wonderful woman".

Actor Christopher Biggins called his late friend "as mad as a snake" but added, "It's not often you get in our business a star who's so nice and is a true star. She really loved people and they really loved her."

Bryan's coffin was carried into church to the sound of her own performance of Hello, Dolly! from the musical in which she starred and a song she wrote about her late husband was played during the service.
