ACCRINGTON-born actress Julie Hesmondhalgh has filmed her final scenes in Coronation Street.

The long-serving star, 43, has walked the street’s cobbles for more than 15 years as fans’ favourite Hayley Cropper.

Scenes of people at Hayley’s funeral were shot on Tuesday, after she finally succumbs to pancreatic cancer.

Her colleagues at underwear factory Underworld led the funeral procession, while her friends followed behind.

Julie wrote on a social networking site: “Thank you, Corrie, for an amazing send off. And thanks for all your lovely messages on here. I can’t bear it. I’m away for a few days now.”

The emotional scenes will be shown on ITV towards the end of January, an ITV spokesman said.
