The lives of those lost on roads across the region will be commemorated at special ceremonies later this month.

The dedicated ceremonies will be held to mark the United Nations Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

Nearby ceremonies will take place on November 19, one in Winchester and one in Thame, giving families from across the Joint Operations Unit region the chance to remember their loved ones.

Last year 144 people were killed on the roads of Hampshire and Thames Valley.

Dave Hardcastle, assistant chief constable for the Joint Operations Unit, said: “We believe it is very important for us to come together with our emergency service colleagues and bereaved families to remember those tragically lost on our roads.

“We welcome anyone who has been affected by the loss of someone on our roads to join us for these very moving ceremonies.”
