A group of funeral guests twerked during the procession.

Mourners gathered for the send off of their loved one, and as the coffin was carried around people who attended the ceremony tapped loudly on the top of the casket and cheered, whilst one woman shook her bottom before she clambered on top of the box to continue dancing before being joined by another guest.

The video, which has been obtained by The Mirror newspaper, has gone viral as it has been viewed more than 313,000 times.

The clip shows crowds of people gathered around the wooden coffin as party music blared from nearby speakers.

However, one man was unimpressed by the behaviour and attempts to balance flowers on top of the coffin, which are continually knocked off by the dancing guest.
