The funeral of a four-year-old girl who died after being struck by a 32-tonne tipper truck will take place this afternoon.
Mitzi Rosanna Steady and three men were killed by the Scania truck on Lansdown Lane in Upper Weston, Bath, Somerset, just after 4pm on February 9th.
The truck carrying sand and gravel first hit Mitzi, from Bath, and her grandmother, who remains in a critical condition in Southmead Hospital in Bristol.
It went on to collide with a number of other vehicles on the road before overturning on to a Volvo at the bottom of the hill, killing the three men inside. They were Robert Parker, 59, from Cwmbran, electricity company director Philip Allen, 52, and taxi driver Stephen Vaughan, 34, both from Swansea.
Mourners have been asked to donate to road safety charity Brake through a JustGiving page in memory of Mitzi as an alternative to flowers.
The page, which was set up by her family last Sunday, has already raised more than £12,500 after hundreds of donations.
