The family of a 13-year-old girl who died after being hit by a tram in Nottinghamshire have held a fun day in her memory.

Lindsey Inger, from Bulwell, was killed on a level crossing near Hucknall's Moor Bridge stop on 28 November.

Relatives and friends organised the event on Sunday to raise money for her funeral and other good causes.

Since Lindsey's death, plans have been drawn up for a temporary footbridge and speed restriction at the crossing.

The fun day, which took place at the Bells Lane Community Centre in Nottingham, featured a raffle and bouncy castle.

Her foster mother, Marlene Starling, said the family wanted to raise money to give the teenager "a really good send-off".

The family also pledged to carry on with their campaign for a permanent footbridge to be installed.

Nottinghamshire Police, the Rail Accident Investigation Branch and Nottingham Express Transit are continuing to investigate the accident.
