Cardiff hit-and-runs: 'She's saved their lives basically'

The brother of Karina Menzies, who was killed during the Cardiff hit-and-runs, has said she "saved the lives" of her two children.

The 32-year-old died and 13 other people were injured after a van driver mowed them down in the city on Friday.

A 31-year-old man is being questioned on suspicion of murder and nine people remain in hospital, including two adults in intensive care.

A special service will be held later at the Church of the Resurrection in Ely.

Ms Menzies' brother, Craig, told Mark Hutchings of BBC Radio 5 Live what he had learned about the incident, saying his sister had apparently screamed and thrown her children out of the way.

He added: "She's saved their lives, basically" and said the family were lost without her.
