Monkees star Davy Jones has been remembered in a small private funeral in Florida.

The singer's memorial took place at a church near his home in Indiantown, near Lake Okeechobee.

A priest who presided over the service says he remembered Jones as a man who took himself lightly, considered neighbours friends and "conveyed to the world a blissful lightness of being."

Another service is scheduled for next week in his hometown of Manchester in the UK.

Discussions are still under way for a public memorial to be held in either New York or Los Angeles.

Jones died of a heart attack last week at the age of 66. He rose to fame as a heartthrob member of The Monkees with chart-toppers including Daydream Believer and I'm a Believer.
