Hundreds of people gathered at Gloucester Cathedral today to say a final goodbye to Hollie Gazzard, the 20 year old hairdresser who died after being stabbed at work.
Speaking at the service, her Grandfather said she "lit up the lives of everyone she came in to contact with, she made everyone smile". Our Gloucestershire Correspondent Ken Goodwin reports:

Hollie was stabbed whilst at work at a salon on Southgate Street in February. Her ex-boyfriend - 22 year old Asher Maslin from Cheltenham - has been charged with her murder. He remains in custody as awaits trial at Gloucester crown court.
