Ely reverend says community is in 'state of carnage'

Reverend Jan Gould, who will lead a service tomorrow for the victims and families of the town's fatal hit-and-run collisions in Ely's Church of the Resurrection, said the feeling in the town was "like a state of carnage".

This will be an opportunity for the whole community to come together, share their grief and find support. People here are numb at the moment and in shock - it's like a state of carnage.

Fortunately, despite its problems, Ely is a very close-knit community and people here are wonderful at pulling together and supporting each other.

– Reverend Jan Gould, the Church of the Resurrection in Ely
