Jo Yeates Romsey butterfly meadow officially opened

Jo Yeates memorial garden Friends and family created the meadow in Miss Yeates's memory

A butterfly meadow, planted in tribute to murdered landscape architect Jo Yeates, has been officially opened near her family home in Hampshire.

Friends and family created the meadow at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum, Romsey, where Miss Yeates worked as a student.

She was killed by her neighbour Vincent Tabak in 2010 in her Bristol flat. He was jailed for 20 years for her murder.

Miss Yeates, who was 25, grew up in Ampfield, nearby.

Miss Yeates's father David had suggested the theme of a butterfly garden based on work his daughter had done at the gardens during her time there.
