Moore body on way back

THE body of music legend Gary Moore will be flown to Britain later today.

Relatives, including his brother Cliff and a girlfriend, are set to accompany the coffin of the Thin Lizzy guitarist on a lunchtime flight from Malaga to London.

His funeral is expected to take place over the weekend in Brighton, where the Belfast-born 58-year-old had been based for some time.

Moore died last Sunday, hours after checking into a hotel in Estepona.

Initial post-mortem results indicate he may have suffered a heart attack. Further tests will be carried out to find the exact cause of death.
