MORE than a thousand people gathered in Poplar for the funeral of much-loved East London landlord Peter West.

A biker gang, pub regulars and musician friends all turned out at St Mary and St Joseph's church to pay their respects to Peter, 47, who died of cancer earlier this month, ran a string of pubs all over the borough.

His wife Donna said: "He was my best friend and I'll miss him.

"So many people turned to give him a send-off because he was such a lovely man."
