Hit-and-run victim died 'saving her children's lives'

The brother of the woman killed in a hit-and-run attack in Cardiff said his sister died trying to save the lives of her children.

Craig Menzies described the moment the van careered towards Karina Menzies and her children. He told Radio 5 Live:

He went through the traffic, aimed for them and then just hit them head on. She just screamed and threw them out of the way as much as she could. He still clipped them but she took it head-on. She saved their lives.

Mr Menzies said the attack was "a waste of a life" and said his sister was "the world to me".

She was my best friend. She was a lively, bubbly person. There's just so many good things you could say about her. We'll all be lost without her.
