A festival is being held in memory of a "kind, loving girl" who was hit by a car and killed while walking to school.

Friends of Liberty Baker, 14, who died in June in Curbridge Road, Witney, are organising Lib Fest, which will take place almost a year after the accident.

Perry Kerslake and Kieran Butler have set up a website ahead of the festival.

They said: "The day will be Lib's day to remember her by and do some of the activities she loved so much. Hopefully this will become a yearly thing."

Lib Fest will take place on Saturday 27 June, three days before the one year anniversary of Liberty's death.

There will be a fun run around The Leys for younger children and a five kilometre run around Witney for everyone else.

There will also be refreshments as well as a bouncy castle and a climbing wall at The Leys.

Robert Blackwell, 19, of Weald near Bampton, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving and is due to appear at Oxford Crown Court in March.
