All but two of the pedestrians injured in a series of hit-and-run incidents in Cardiff 12 days ago have now been discharged from hospital.

Karen Menzies, 31, died and 13 children and adults were injured in collisions across the western side of the city on 19 October.

Cardiff and Vale health officials have clarified a statement issued on Wednesday which suggested all 13 injured people had been released.

On Thursday they said one adult remained at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, while another adult had been transferred to Morriston Hospital, Swansea.

Matthew Tvrdon, 31, is accused of murder, attempted murder and assault.

He faces a total of 19 charges, including murder, 13 counts of attempted murder, four counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and one charge of dangerous driving.

Ms Menzies's funeral will be held on Friday, 9 November.

Her body will be taken by horse-drawn carriage from her home in the Ely area of Cardiff to the Church of the Resurrection on nearby Grand Avenue.

A sound system will broadcast the service, which starts at 13:00 GMT.

Organisers say all are welcome at the funeral of Ms Menzies, a mother of three, who died while walking with two of her daughters near Ely fire station on Cowbridge Road West.

Two trust funds have been set up: one for Ms Menzies' children and another for the other victims, including her children.
