Memorial for Lyndhurst wall crash women
Hundreds of friends and relatives of two women who died when a car hit a wall in the New Forest have attended a memorial.
Lily Catherine Butterfield-Godwin and Abbey Rogers, both 19 and from Lyndhurst, were passengers in the car and died at the scene in Gosport Lane on 13 December.
A minute's applause was held at Boltons Bench, Lyndhurst, earlier.
It was followed by the release of hundreds of balloons.
'They deserve applause'
More than 500 people were expected to attend, according to a Facebook event listing.
One of the organisers, Laura Armstrong, admitted on the page "we never expected numbers to be this high" and had advised those wishing to pay their respects to "arrive in plenty of time".
Lily Vogt, another friend, said originally they had planned a minute's silence but it had been replaced with clapping because "Lily and Abbey were never ones to be silent, and they deserve a round of applause".
The driver, a 21-year-old man, and another passenger, a 19-year-old woman, were taken to hospital following the crash. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
