The family of a young woman who died last year are asking donations to be made to Suzy Lamplugh Trust in her memory.

Alice Ruggles was just 24 when she was killed at her home in Rawling Street, Gateshead on Wednesday 12th October.

Trimaan 'Harry' Dhillon, 26, a soldier serving with the 2 Scots, based at Glencorse Barracks, in Penicuik, Midlothian ,Glasgow, denies murder and is currently on trial at Newcastle Crown Court.

Tributes have been paid to Alice, a Northumbria University Graduate who worked as a site manager for Sky at the media giant's Newcastle hub and more hundreds of friends and family turned out for her funeral to pay their last respects.

Alice, an expert fencer who represented her university at national championships, was well-liked at work and rose quickly through the ranks after bosses spotted her potential.

Alice, who is originally from Leicestershire, is survived by siblings Nick, Emma and Patrick and by parents Clive and Sue.
