Flowers left for Hull student Libby Squire are to be turned into pot pourri.

Tributes were placed at the bench were Libby was last seen, on the corner of Haworth Street and Beverley Road. The 21-year-old was found dead last week.

Libby’s parents have visited the bench to see the flowers and read messages, and asked that the flowers did not go to waste.

The flowers will be moved to Hull Community Church for Mother's Day morning, and then volunteers will spend the rest of the day turning the petals into the scented material.

The pot pourri will be given to her family and friends, and the community.

The church, which is at the junction of Cott Rd and Newland Ave, is asking volunteers to come forward to help from 11am and also for people to donate jam jars as containers for the pot pourri.

A spokesperson for the church said:

If you have brought flowers, cards and tributes, thank you so much.

You can know that Libby’s family will always have a memory of your kindness and love."
