Royal British Legion appeal for people to attend funeral of Navy captain who died with no family

The Royal British Legion has appealed for people to attend the funeral of a 'proud' retired sea captain who died with no immediate family.
Keith Rigby, who served in the Royal Navy, died on 1 August at the age of 74.
He lived as a recluse in a Halewood flat with no family, the Royal British Legion (RBL) said, and his funeral has been arranged by the local council.
The RBL are now appealing for mourners to attend Mr Rigby's funeral, which is set to take place on Monday 4 October in St Helens.
They say that Mr Rigby, who was once a 'proud' man who enjoyed a career in the Royal Navy, had lived in squalid conditions over recent years.
Mr Rigby's funeral is set to take place at 9.30am on Monday 4 October at St Helens Crematorium, Rainford Road, St Helens.
