The local community have come together to raise funds for the family of a man who drowned after he had jumped into Portsmouth Harbour to rescue two children.

Both children are safe but Marco Araujo lost his life in July.

Local company Krazycruisers organised a car show to raise money to help Marco's family. The event "Cruise fit for a hero" saw more than 500 people gather to show their respects.

It was followed by a two minute silence and a convoy of more than 350 cars from Cascades car park to Southsea seafront. The event raised more than £1100.
