Saying goodbye to a colourful character - with video
A converted van carrying one of Brighton’s most colourful characters was cheered along the seafront yesterday.
Jonny Sutherland died suddenly three days before Christmas, aged 37.
The popular graphic designer, inventor and entertainer who was also a talented hat maker, was known by half of Brighton for cycling around on a variety of tall contraptions.
Hundreds of people gathered on the seafront to pay Jonny an appropriate farewell.
The procession travelled along Madeira Drive before heading to Woodvale Crematorium, and was accompanied by people donning bird feathers in their hats and riding bicycles.
He was carried in the converted van he was travelling around the UK in with his girlfriend.
Jonny had worked at Northern Lights bar on Little East Street for three years.
Friend Sally Irish said: “We have lost one of the colourful characters of our city.”
