Jean Alexander, who played Hilda Ogden in Coronation Street, passed away in October last year.

And now, her relatives have given Jean a final resting place in one of her favourite places, a world away from Weatherfield near Grasmere in the Lake District.

Jean's niece Sonia Hearld, 65, told the Mirror: “We spent many happy holidays there as kids. It has happy memories. The family know it, so it is a good place. Jean loved going up there.

While she was not a great top of the hills walker, she did love pottering around and seeing the scenery. It just seemed the most ­suitable thing to do. It seemed to be a nice place, a quiet place.”
