Moment flash mob bursts into funeral service dancing to Another One Bites the ... trends now

A flash mob left mourners stunned after bursting into the funeral service of a cancer victim and dancing to the Queen classic Another One Bites The Dust. 

In video footage shared online, four members from the Flaming Feathers dance troupe can be seen suddenly standing up from their seats inside the crematorium in Bristol, before whipping off their jackets and performing their routine at the front of the church. 

The dancers had disguised themselves as loved ones of former barmaid Sandie Wood, 65, who died of tongue cancer on September 19. 

Sandie, who was a victim of the NHS hepatitis C infected blood scandal, had asked the group to perform at her funeral as she did not want everyone to be sad as they said their farewells. 

She also arranged for other surprises during her £10,000 send-off, including a horse-drawn hearse and a specially crafted coffin lined with her favourite sparkly shoes that was topped with a floral white witch riding a broomstick.

Her friend Sam Ryalls, 43, who helped arrange the flash mob, said: 'She was one of a kind, so she left the world how she lived it, being herself.

'She wanted everyone to remember her funeral but not for a sad reason.

'Everyone is sad and grieving because she is not here anymore but that doesn't mean her final day had to be that way.'

Sam added that the 'hardest thing was finding dancers to do it' as many said they were not 'comfortable' with the idea. 

But Flaming Feathers director Claire Phipps, 36, agreed to do the job, admitting that after gigging for 12 years - usually performing burlesque or cabaret - they had 'never done a funeral.' 

She added: 'We had to pretend to be part of the guests with people crying and grieving and then get up, whip our coats off and rock out.

'It was really nice to do something different.'

Footage of the funeral shows how, amidst crying family members, the group stood up as music began playing loudly, before removing large jackets hiding their uniforms and
