Hundreds join Cardiff memorial walk for Karina Menzies

Hundreds of people have taken part in a memorial walk to remember Karina Menzies, who died following a series of road traffic collisions in Cardiff one week ago.

A fund has been set up to help support the 31-year-old's family and some of the other victims who were involved in the incidents. It's estimated the money raised through donations amounts to around £2,000 so far.

Reverend Jan Gould, from the Church of the Resurrection in Ely, has been helping to co-ordinate the fundraising. She says the support from the community following the event has been 'phenomenal'.

I've had so many phone calls and texts from people saying they want to put on events to raise money. It's just amazing to see the generosity of people.

The fund has also attracted the support of celebrities, including actors Hugh Grant and Sir Ian McKellen, both of whom have donated money.

The walk began in Penarth and visted all of the areas where people were injured in the collisions.

Thirteen people were injured following the road traffic collisions at various locations across the west of the city. Both adults and children were critically injured.

A man appeared at Newport Crown Court via video link on Tuesday charged with the murder of Karina Menzies, along with 13 counts of attempted murder, four counts of actual bodily harm and one count of dangerous driving. He will reappear in court on 28th January.
