A fundraising campaign for a 10-year-old girl who was killed in an ambulance collision before Christmas has raised more than £5,000.

The 10-year-old, who has been named as Shaniqua Loftman-Smith, died in hospital after a collision with an ambulance in Bulwell.

The ambulance was responding to an emergency call at 6.30pm on Sunday 22 December. She was a pedestrian.
