Police are asking drivers to "pull over" for the funeral procession of a gang member.

Peter Lui's funeral is being held in Napier on Tuesday, a week after he was assaulted outside the Outlaws Motorcycle Club headquarters.

He died of his injuries the same day. 

Police told Newshub they are "very aware" of the funeral and expect a large attendance at the Napier War Memorial.

Motorists should pull over if they see the subsequent procession.

"We advise members of the public on the roads, if they see the funeral procession, to pull over  the same as we would ask for any funeral procession," a spokesperson said.

Police say they have allocated resources to policing the funeral as well as to the ongoing homicide investigation into Lui's death.
