An estimated 1500 mourners gathered to pay their respects at the funeral of James Gandolfini, Thursday.

Actor Alec Baldwin and 'Sopranos' co-stars including Lorraine Bracco and Michael Imperioli were amongst the celebrities who attended the service in New York.

The 51-year-old actor died of a heart attack last week while on holiday with his son in Italy.

Missoni's plane has been found in Venezuela.

The country's authorities say the sumberged aircraft, which went missing earlier this year, was discovered overnight, about 190 kilometres north of Caracas.

The plane had disappeared in January, carrying the CEO of Missoni fashion house, Vittorio Missoni, his long time companion, Maurizia Castiglioni and four other people.

Festival goers who have been arriving at Glastonbury since Wednesday can see the first of this year's headline acts tonight, when The Arctic Monkeys take to the Pyramid stage.

The Rolling Stones headline Saturday, topping the bill, while Mumford and Sons close the festival on Sunday.

135,000 music fans are expected at the event, which is one of the world's largest music festivals.

This is Nicki Finlay with AP Showbiz Minute.
