PEOPLE are urged to wear bright colours when they celebrate the life of zookeeper Rosa King, who died after being mauled by a tiger, when a service is held at St Andrew's Church, Chippenham, on Wednesday at 2pm.

Ms King, 33, who grew up in Chippenham, died at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire on May 29, after suffering traumatic injuries.

Family of the former Hardenhuish School and Lackham College student have asked friends and relatives to wear colourful clothing and to come to the service to share memories of the animal lover.

Flowers are welcome or people can make donations to the Cheetah Conservation Fund care of FW Jones and Son in Chippenham.
