The fountain in Padiham's Memorial Park has become a shrine to mum of two Katie Kenyon after people gathered to lay flowers and tributes there yesterday afternoon.

Padiham has come together in a tremendous show of support for her family and a fund raising page set up is just £200 away from hitting £20,000.

Katie's body was found a week last Saturday in the Forest of Gisburn, six days after she went missing.

A man has since appeared in court charged with her murder and a trial is due to begin in November.
