Church service for Cardiff hit-and-run victims
A SPECIAL church service has been held for those injured and killed in a series of hit-and-run incidents in Cardiff.
Family, friends and members of the community gathered at the Church of the Resurrection in Ely last night in a show of solidarity.
Thirteen people were injured in 30 mad minutes in the Ely and Leckwith areas of Cardiff on Friday, which happened as children were walking home from school.
Mum-of-three Karina Menzies, 32, was killed while 13 other people — including two of Ms Menzies's daughters, aged eight and 23 months — were injured. Ms Menzies's eldest child, who is 10, is understood to be on a "dream holiday" in Florida.

Nine people remain in hospital, with two adults in intensive care.
A 31-year-old man was last night being questioned on suspicion of murder, and police are appealing for witnesses to come forward to help them piece together what happened.
Detectives revealed on Saturday that people were also assaulted outside the van, possibly with a weapon.
The Reverend Jan Gould, who led last night's service, said: "People here are numb at the moment and in shock — it's like a state of carnage."
The First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, said he was deeply shocked by what happened in Cardiff, and said his thought were with the families of those affected.
The Archbishop of Wales, Barry Morgan, also said his thoughts and prayers were with the Cardiff families.
Gwaun-cae-Gurwen-born Dr Morgan said: "A tragic incident like this shows how fragile life is and how vulnerable we all are."
