1 of 1

The funeral of Grand National-winning jockey Liam Treadwell takes place in a private service at Arundel Cathedral in West Sussex on Wednesday.

There will be a live stream of the service available for those who cannot attend, and mourners are expected to line the route to the cathedral for the Sussex-born rider, who was apprenticed on the Flat to Amanda Perrett's stable in Pulborough before turning to jump racing. 

Treadwell, 34, died last month at his home in Billingsley near Bridgnorth, and his family announced a day of remembrance will be arranged for friends and family after further easing of coronavirus restrictions.

The jockey, who shot to fame with his 100-1 Grand National win on Mon Mome in 2009, had learned how to ride at trainer John Dunlop's Castle Stables in Arundel.

The live stream for the funeral service, which starts at 10am, can be found through the Arundel Cathedral website. 

The funeral is family flowers only, but any donations can be made in person on the day or via HD Tribe, Funeral Directors, 19 West St, Storrington, Pulborough RH20 4DZ.

All donations will be shared between the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton and Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation.
