No mourners at funeral of Elvis Aaron Presley

Elvis Presley has died ... at the age of 70 in Birmingham. The King's biggest fan, who changed his name by deed poll so many years ago that no one knows his real name, died in hospital of heart problems and his funeral took place at an empty crematorium.

Yesterday a hand-written note at his terraced house - called Gracelands - said: "No post please, Elvis has died."

Helen Edwards, 54, a neighbour in Handsworth, Birmingham, said: "He was a massive fan and changed his name a long time ago. We only ever knew him as Elvis.

"His family fell out with him and he's been on his own for a long time. We think he's got three children but no one here has ever met them."
