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.
