More than 800 people have joined a Facebook group in memory of a woman who died after a car went off a bridge in Bristol.

Namara Whisker, 22, from Easton, was killed in the crash which happened on Saturday morning.

Ms Whisker, who was the front seat passenger in the car, worked in Cabot Circus, and had recently had a baby.

Her father Gary Jordan said: "She has left a big gap in all of our lives. I miss her so much."

Flowers have also been left at the scene of the accident on St Phillips Bridge near Bristol's Harbourside.

One friend wrote on Facebook: "Girl you were so fun to be around, a joker and full of life!"
