FAMILY and friends said their final goodbyes at the funeral of Gary Reinbach, the 22-year-old alcoholic who died after being denied a life-saving liver transplant
Traffic was stopped as a procession of around 100 mourners followed Gary's coffin from his home in Ibscott Close, Dagenham to Eastbrookend Cemetery.
The former Sydney Russell pupil began drinking at the age of 13 and developed one of the worst cases of cirrhosis doctors had ever seen.
NHS chiefs ruled out a liver transplant because Gary did not comply with the strict transplant criteria, which requires a drying out spell of six months before organs are donated.
