Attached to Downend Bridge is a single bunch of red roses tied with a pink ribbon, the only reminder of yesterday’s tragic accident in which a woman died after falling from the bridge which crosses the M27.
The flowers have a small gold card attached to them with the words “Dearest Lucy Be at Peace Daz and Jac XX”, a poignant reminder of a tragic waste of life.
