Friends and family packed St Mary’s Church, Kirkintilloch, to say farewell to TV presenter Michelle Watt, who died last month.

Michelle (38), the daughter of boxing legend Jim, was found dead at her home in Stirlingshire. It is understood that ongoing chronic pain after a spinal procedure led to her taking her own life.

A horse-drawn coach led the cortege from the church on Monday afternoon, and along the street hundreds more turned out to pay their respects and support the Watt family.

Michelle, a former Lenzie Academy pupil, is survived by her husband Paul Kerr, daughter Jaymi, parents Jim and Margaret and brother Andrew. Her other brother, Jim junior, died in a car accident in 1995.
