The procession, which passed through Houghton Regis and Mr Fanelli’s hometown of Dunstable yesterday, was overseen by police officers who closed off town centre streets and shoppers who paid their respects.

A short service took place at All Saints Church in Houghton Regis before the procession continued to a Dunstable cemetery.

Mr Fanelli, who was 31 and a scrap metal dealer, was found dead at Nash Park on March 17. Tests show he died from head injuries.

Jemma Price, 30, from Bedfordshire, and Addy McAllister, 33, from Derbyshire have both been charged with murder.
