TEARS of sadness were lost among the rain as Earby came to a standstill for its fallen hero soldier today.

The heavens opened for the full military funeral of Lance Corporal Jordan Bancroft at All Saints Church, Earby, on Friday, almost three weeks since he died in a gunfight on a security operation in Afghanistan.

The 1st Battalion Duke of Lancaster Regiment soldier was given an emotional send-off from a church packed full of 300 family and friends and hundreds more watching on a big screen outside.
