People lined the streets as Luke Burton’s funeral procession made its way along Filey seafront on Friday. It stopped briefly at Filey Lifeboat Station - Luke was a former member of the RNLI - where the lifeboat crew and staff stood infront of the vessel, before going on to a service held for the 23-year-old, who was tragically killed in a crash between his motorbike and a bus outside the Blue Dolphin holiday park. Afterwards, friends and family gathered at Filey Sports Club on Clarence Drive for a socially-distanced celebration of Luke’s life. You can donate to a fundraiser in his memory for Filey Sports Club HERE.
