THE body of Whitby murder victim Julie Davison was taken to Scarborough Woodlands Crematorium today following the funeral service.

She was committed to the sound of Ken Dodd’s ‘Happiness’.

The 50-year-old woman’s coffin had earlier been pulled through the centre of Whitby in a horse-drawn carriage before a ceremony at St Mary’s Church at 1pm.

Following behind the coffin were friends and family including her only son Christopher, who was comforted by Dawn and George Kibble, his aunt and uncle.

James Allen, of Middlesbrough, was charged with her death, and was in Scarborough immediately after the tragedy. He is due to appear in court in coming weeks.
