PUB regulars have paid tribute to a Royston man who has died.

The funeral of John Neagle, 58, took place on Monday at Cambridge Crematorium.

Carlo Zambonini, who had known Mr Neagle for a number of years as they both were customers at the North Star pub in Royston, said: "I am proud to say John Neagle was my friend.

"In a period when others moan, complained, or blamed, John remained cheerful, enthusiastic, and hopeful."

Mr Zambonini added that Mr Neagle had been attacked in the street on several occasions.

"For him the North Star was a haven where he could enjoy a quiet pint.

"There was no one worse off than John, yet he was stoic to the end.

"There was more integrity contained in his little finger than the average Hollywood star, or politicians.
