Final farewell to Robin Gibb

Sat, 09 Jun 2012

A final farewell has been said to Bee Gees star Robin Gibb.

Yesterday, the singer’s coffin was draped with the Manx flag as the funeral procession passed through the town of Thame in Oxfordshire, where Robin had lived.

The 62 year old died last month after a long battle with cancer.

His brother Barry paid an emotional tribute at the service, saying Robin has finally been re-united with his twin Maurice who died in 2003.

Robin was a great global ambassador for the Island and supporter of local charities.

Chief Minister Allan Bell says he appreciates everything Robin and his family has done.[Play media file below]
