A memorial bench in honour of a 22 year-old woman from Derbyshire killed after a landslide in Dorset will be unveiled today.

Charlotte Blackman died while on holiday with her family at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park at Burton Bradstock.

Around 400 tonnes of rock, a large section of the cliff, is estimated to have fallen onto the beach in the incident.

Tributes were paid to Charlotte at a funeral near her home in Heanor, Derbyshire.

Friends and family of Charlotte say a bench will be unveiled near the children's park at the time Charlotte died. Flowers will then be placed at the site on the beach before 22 pink and purple balloons are released.

Her family also say they have donated more than £3,000 to Derbyshire Autism Services Group where Charlotte volunteered. A series of events looking to raise more money for charity are being planned in the future.
