Balloons released in memory of car crash victim Amy

MOURNERS have released 100 balloons in memory of car crash victim Amy Savage whose well-attended funeral took place in Leek today.

The service for the 22 year old, from Cheddleton, was held at St Edward’s Parish Church and was followed by interment at the town’s Buxton Road cemetery.

A wake was later held at Leek Cricket Club where the coloured balloons were released  on the playing pitch.

Amy died after the car in which she was a back-seat passenger crashed on a country road at Onecote, near Leek, earlier this month.
