Malcolm McLaren fans will be able to pay their final tributes to the punk impresario when his funeral procession takes place through Camden today.

The former Sex Pistols manager will be laid to rest at Highgate cemetery this afternoon. He died on April 8, aged 64.

The procession will start in Camden High Street, before travelling along Chalk Farm Road, Ferdinand Street, Malden Road and Southampton Road and ending up at Highgate cemetery.

Humanitarian website Humanade, run by McLaren's son Joseph Corré, is encouraging fans of the musical trailblazer to observe a "Minute of Mayhem" rather than a minute's silence, in honour of his groundbreaking work in the punk rock scene.
