The funeral for Jack, who lost his battle with an inoperable brain tumour, has taken place at All Saints’ Church, in Hambledon Road, Denmead.

Scores of people attended the service, which had been made public by parents Terence, 47, and Marie 41.

His mother pre-recorded the song How Long Will I Love You, by Ellie Goulding, which was played aloud in church.

The hymns Morning Has Broken and All Things Bright And Beautiful were also sung.

And as a final tribute, singer Marnie Clements performed I Will Always Love You, made famous by Whitney Houston.

Speaking to The News, Mr Robinson said: ‘Jack was a special boy, he was unique and brought everyone together.

‘We needed to give him a unique send off.

‘I will always love you son.’

Jack arrived in a horse-drawn carriage with a Star Wars coffin, surrounded by Stormtroopers.

A wake is taking place at the Victory Bar in Fratton Park from 3pm - all are welcome to attend.
