School will honour drowned pupil
Laura Morgan
A hockey trophy is awarded in Laura's memory
A Nottingham high school is unveiling a garden seat in memory of an 11-year-old pupil who died in a boating accident in Greece in July 2003.

Laura Morgan of Woodborough was on a family holiday when she became trapped underneath a catamaran and drowned.

Nottingham Girls' High School is dedicating the seat in a new wildlife garden to her on Wednesday.

Her mother Lynne Morgan has established the Laura Rose Memorial Trust for disadvantaged children, in her memory.

"She was a great beacon - she was a happy, loving and giving child," her mother said.

A memorial hockey trophy is also awarded at the school to mark Laura's love for the game.

Mrs Morgan is flying out to Greece for the trial of five employees of the company Sunsail who are charged with causing her daughter's death through negligence.

Laura died near the island of Lefkada at the Club Vounaki operated by Sunsail.

Nottinghamshire Police have also investigated Laura's death for the coroner.

The Crown Prosecution Service is following the case in Greece to determine if any further action is necessary.
