Piper plays as mourners at funeral of Jason Martin pause as mark of respect at murder scene in Ballymena

Jason Martin's coffin is carried past the murder scene during his funeral on Thursday.

A PIPER played as mourners attending the funeral of Jason Martin in Ballymena on Thursday paused for reflection as a mark of respect at the scene of his murder in the town’s Ballykeel estate.

Mr Martin, a 31-year-old father-of-two, died last weekend following a stabbing at a house at Orkney Drive.

His funeral cortege made its way through the Ballykeel Two estate on Thursday afternoon.

His coffin was covered in a flag of Jason’s beloved Liverpool FC – the team he watched win the Premier League title last week.

A number of mourners wore Liverpool FC jerseys.

A wreath saying ‘Ballykeel FC’ was laid at the murder scene during the funeral.
