Cardiff hit-and-runs: 'Pride' at sister's quick thinking

The sister of Karina Menzies, who was killed in the Cardiff hit-and-run attacks of 19 October last year, says she feels proud of how the 31-year-old mother saved her children's lives.

Samantha Menzies said Karina pushed Ellie, eight, and Tiana, two, out of the way of the van driven by Matthew Tvrdon.

Karina Menzies died in the collision outside Ely fire station while her two children were injured. Her third child Sophie, who has a degenerative muscle disease, was away at the time on a "dream holiday" in Florida.

Tvrdon has admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and seven counts of attempted murder, along with other offences.

BBC Wales Today's Caroline Evans asked Samantha Menzies about her memories of that day.
