The teacher and 16 children who died in the Dunblane massacre were yesterday remembered in a poignant ceremony to name two rose bushes in their memory.

The Gwen Mayor and Innocence roses were chosen by Mrs Mayor's husband Rod (pictured) and the families of the children who were killed last year. Sixteen Innocence plants and a single Gwen Mayor bush were planted to form the centrepiece on a roundabout in Dunblane. The ceremony took place on the 10th anniversary of another gun atrocity, in which 16 people died in Hungerford, Berkshire. The roses were developed by James Cocker and Sons, Aberdeen, with the support of the Dunblane Fund.
