The family of Hollie Gazzard, who was stabbed to death by her ex-boyfriend in 2014, have won a campaign to get distressing pictures of her with her killer removed from her Facebook profile.
Pictures of the 20-year-old hairdresser with Asher Maslin were still viewable on her profile until recently, despite earlier attempts to get them removed. However the family confirmed that Facebook has now done this.
Nick Gazzard, Hollie's father, thanked supporters of the campaign and Facebook for "showing compassion".
"We are delighted to confirm that today, Facebook have removed the offending photos from Hollie's memorialised Facebook account and now we can all browse her photos without getting upset.
"We would like to express our sincere thanks to the 11,000+ who kindly signed our petition and those who also contacted Facebook direct and asked for photos to be taken down."
