Funeral for Soho bomb victim
The Soho nail bomb killed three and injured 65
The second funeral to be held for a victim of the Soho nail bomb attack has taken place in Essex.
His funeral service was held at the Wimpole Road Methodist Church in Colchester on Monday, and was followed by a cremation.
His Labrador-cross dog Ben was also taken to the funeral service.
The Rev Robert Bean, who conducted the service, told the congregation that Mr Light had loved Ben so much that it was a case of "love me, love my dog".
Mr Light's partner Gary Partridge, who was injured in the blast and was released from hospital last week, was also present.
Mr Light had moved to Wokingham, Berkshire, where he was general manager of a Gala bingo club, five months before his death. Previously, he had been deputy manager at a Gala club in Colchester for eight years.
One member of staff from the Wokingham Gala club - 19-year-old Michelle Higgins - read out a poem which she and colleagues has written in memory of Mr Light.
Mr Light had worked at the Gala Bingo Club in Colchester with pregnant Andrea Dykes, who was also killed in the blast.
He had been best man at her marriage to her husband Julian, 25, who is still in a critical condition in hospital. The couple had just chosen him as a godparent.
Charged with murder
Nicholas Moore, 31, also died in the attack. His funeral was held in Felixtowe on Friday, followed by a private cremation in Ipswich.
At Mr Moore's funeral service, his brother Martin addressed a congregation of more than 300 mourners about his gay brother, and made an impassioned plea for an end to prejudice.
A total of 65 people were injured in the attack, which followed two previous nail bombings in Brixton and Brick Lane.
Engineer David Copeland, 22, of Sunnybank Road, Cove, Farnborough, in Hampshire, has been charged with three counts of murder and three of causing an explosion.
He has been remanded in custody to appear at Bow Street Magistrates' court on 7 June.
