Memorial to tragic family.

GRIEF-STRICKEN Ken Braithwaite is to place a memorial bench at the spot where his family were killed in a road tragedy.

Wife Shirley, 51, daughter Natalie, 22, and son Matthew, 19, were hit by a car as they walked on a narrow pavement.

The tragedy happened in Gairloch, Wester Ross, when the family, from Barnsley, Yorkshire, were on holiday in August.

Mr Braithwaite, 53, also revealed that villagers have raised pounds 3500 for Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, after he asked for donations in lieu of flowers.

He said: "I have made a lot of friends in the village. I am determined to build some sort of life again."

A 28-year-old man is due to appear at Inverness Sheriff Court in May charged with causing death by dangerous driving, driving without an MOT certificate or insurance and with defective tyres.
