More than £3,400 has been raised to pay for the funeral of a "lovely" Whittlesey woman "who would help anyone".

It comes after a fundraiser was set up on Monday June 7 following the death of Angela Morley, who died at the age of 52.

Colin Martin, who launched the GoFundMe page, said: "Some friends of Angela - or Ang as she was known - have been in touch as she died without a funeral plan or money for a funeral."

Mr Martin originally set a target of £1,700 - to make sure Ang would stay at local funeral directors.

However, £1,000 was raised in under three hours and £2,522 was later raised in less than a day.

The money raised will pay for a church service and crematorium service.  

"Ang was a lovely person who would help anyone," he added.
