General public access to the Minster will not be granted until the service has ended at around 2pm.

Mr Gration grew up in York, attended St Peter's School and most recently lived near the Knavesmire with Helen and their three sons. He has three older children from previous marriages.

The BBC confirmed that the service wil begin at 11.30am.

The cortège will travel down Leeman Road, over Lendal Bridge and will come to rest in Duncombe Place by the Minster.

The public are invited to pay their respects but have been warned that space will be limited as the funeral is expected to be 'exceptionally' well-attended.
