Hartsdown Mourns Kelsey Murphy

Hundreds of mourners attended the service at Margate crematorium today for schoolgirl Kelsey Murphy who died when a car driven by her brother, Aaron was in a collision with a lorry opposite the cricket club in Hartsdown road, last month.

The crematorium is very near the crash site where the railings outside the cricket club remain adorned with hundreds of floral tributes, soft toys, school ties and shirt with messages of support and sympathy written on them. Her school, Hartsdown College closed for the morning as a mark of respect.

Fund raising has been carried out at Hartsdown College for a memorial to Kelsey to be created at a date in the future once plans have been agreed upon.
