It was a bitter sweet occasion as family and friends gathered to remember Martha Seaward on what would have been her 18th birthday.

Laughter and tears were shared at the party celebrating the life of the teenager who died tragically in a road accident more than two years ago.

Martha's parents Karen and John and brothers and sisters attended the occasion in Sheringham last night.

The event called Remembering Martha: A Celebration was organised by Sam Hinton, a close friend of the family. Slide show pictures of Martha set to music were shown and Mrs Seaward spoke to share memories of her daughter.

Around £300 was raised for Norfolk based children's bereavement charity Nelson's Journey, which helped Martha's siblings cope with her loss.
