A memorial stone will be unveiled in Birmingham later in memory of a teenage girl stabbed in the city.

16 year old Christina Edkins was attacked on the top deck of a number nine bus as it headed along the Hagley Road in March.

The stone is being placed just yards from where the incident happened, at 54 Hagley Road.

Philip Simelane, 23, pleaded guilty to Christina's manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

Last month he was sentenced to an indeterminate hospital order.
