Model and actress Kelly Brook has joined other family members and friends at her father's funeral in Kent.

Kenneth Parsons had fought a long battle with cancer, but he died at his home in Rochester on 26 November. He was 57.

An hour-long private service took place at the Medway Crematorium in Chatham.

Brook, 28, initially continued rehearsals for the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing after her father's death, but she later pulled out of the contest.
