Family and friends of late Islington schoolteacher Tracey Wilson unveiled a bench in her honour in Priory Park, Hornsey last weekend.

Tracey, 55, of Birkbeck Road, a senior teacher at City of London Academy Islington, was hit by a van near St Mary's Tower in Hornsey in January.

Her family including son Courtney and sister Lorraine unveiled the bench on the hottest day of the year so far - Saturday June 27 - as a way of remembering her, while also releasing doves in her honour.

Friends and family had also raised around £500 to help support Courtney and his young son Cody - Tracy's only grandchild.

Lorraine told this newspaper: "It was a beautiful day. It was hard to say it there, but we want to thank all of our friends who came and everyone who raised money for the family."
