Plymouth: Fundraising page set up to help pay for victims' funerals and support families

The community of Keyham has come together to raise money for the families of the victims of the mass shooting that unfolded in Plymouth last week.

A JustGiving page has been set up to try and raise £10,000 to go towards the funerals of the five people killed in the attack.

Maxine Davison (also known as Maxine Chapman) aged 51, Sophie Martyn, aged three, and her father Lee Martyn (43) Stephen Washington (59) and Kate Shepherd (66) all lost their lives in the attack on August 12.

Fundraising organiser Andy White lives on Biddick Drive in Keyham, where gunman Jake Davison carried out the attack.

Mr White called on the community to "pull together and try and ease the burden for the families who have lost so much."

The Plymouth mass shooting was the first in Britain for more than a decade.

Davison, who had a licence to own a firearm, killed his own mother before going on to take the lives of four others - he then turned the gun on himself.

An investigation has been launched into how the 22-year-old was in possession of a firearm, having had his licence returned by police just last month.

On Wednesday, a church service was held in Plymouth to remember those killed in the attack.

The Bishop of Plymouth the Right Reverend Nick McKinnel held the service at the Minister Church of St Andrews on Royal Parade.

It's the latest memorial event organised by the people of the city as the community reels from the attack.

Two candlelit vigils have also been held in memory of the victims. Flowers and messages of support have been left near to where the shooting happened, with the attack described as one of the the city's "darkest day".
