A book of tributes to the student who was killed in a shooting on Boxing Day in Greater Manchester is to be hand-delivered to his home in India.

Lancaster University's deputy vice-chancellor Professor Bob McKinley will take the book to Pune, where Anuj Bidve's parents live, in February.

It contains messages collected at a memorial service to Mr Bidve, 23, who was a student at the university.

He died when he was shot on a visit to Salford in December.

Mr Bidve was visiting the area with a group of friends from Lancaster University, where he was studying engineering, when he was killed.

About 200 staff and students from the university gathered for a memorial service at the institution's chaplaincy centre on Saturday.

During the service, vice-chancellor Professor Mark Smith paid tribute to the police, the people of Salford, and the university community for the way they had responded to Mr Bidve's death.
