Inspiral Carpets have taken to Twitter following the funeral of their drummer Craig Gill.

In November, the band broke the news that the This Is how It Feels rocker had sadly passed away, aged just 44.

Now, after attending their funeral, the band have taken to Twitter to thank all those who joined them to at the service, with guitarist Graham Lambert writing: "Thanks to every1 who made today special. Whether you flew in from Argentina, USA & Aus or walked from Salford."

Liam Gallagher, who also attended the ceremony, led the tributes on Twitter, showing "massive respect" to Gill's family and friends and praising them for a "lovely service".

The Oasis man also shared an image of the musician at his drum kit, which used the famous Northern Soul logo with the words "Oldham soul". 

Others have echoed Gallagher's sentiments on Twitter, while original Inspiral Carpets singer Stephen Holt called it the "saddest day".

Inspiral fans are continuing to show their support with a campaign to get Saturn 5 to Christmas No.1, and even football is getting on board.

According to this fan, the crowds at Man City held up a sign in support of the campaign.

Meanwhile at Old Trafford, Man United showed their support by adding Inspiral's Saturn 5 to their halftime playlist.
