A FUNERAL for a 20-year-old St Helens man who died in a car crash has taken place.

Shane Maughan died after a crash between his Ford Mondeo and a black cab in Burnley in November.

The procession involved a horse-drawn limousine, a horse-drawn flat-truck and a host of limousines followed by hundreds of mourners.

Immediately after the 20-year-old’s death, Lancashire Police referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Following his death, his family released the following statement: “Shane will be sadly missed by his sisters, his brothers and his Mum. He was a loving person, bubbly and full of life.

“He was the life and soul of the party and it will never be the same without him.

“Gone way before your time, we’ll remember you with your smile and we’ll remember you and smile.”
