The funeral of former Coronation Street actress Liz Dawn is to be held at Salford Cathedral next Friday.

Dawn, who became one of the best-known and best-loved faces on British Tv playing Vera Duckworth for 34 times, died on Monday at persons under the age of 77.

The Requiem Mass will take place at 14:00 BST and will be followed by a private home committal.
