A charity set up in memory of a York teenager who was murdered while backpacking in Australia has launched a mobile phone app offering travel safety advice. Caroline Stuttle was 19 when she was thrown to her death from a bridge in Queensland in 2002.

Caroline's Rainbow Foundation was set up to raise awareness of the importance of safe travel for young people. The Safer Travel App is free to download from today.
