A Weymouth mother has finished a book started by her teenage daughter who died of bone cancer.

Karina Glynn's wish was for other people going through a similar situation to use it as an inspirational tool.

Her Mum Rose says after her death in 2003 she couldn't put pen to paper - but she's glad the book is now finally finished.

"For the last 2 to 3 years there's been nonstop writing, just to make sure I made this deadline for the tenth anniversary. I just felt the book being released that day would be a celebration on a very sad day."

The book launch is being held at Weymouth Community Fire Station, on Saturday 1st June, which will be the 10th anniversary of her death.
