Thousands turned out in Bristol last night to mark the start of the City's year as European Green Capital.

Prayers said for machete victim's family and friends

Prayers will be said for Zac Evans' family and friends in church services across the region this morning.

The Diocese of Gloucester has told us that the 19 year old will be remembered at services at St Georges in Tuffley and at Gloucester Cathedral.

Zac died after a suspected machete attack outside a Gloucester pub on Friday night. Two others were injured in the attack. One man has been arrested.
