STUDENTS at a school where teacher Leda Bolden worked will hold a memorial for her today (Wednesday).

Our Lady Catholic School in Hitchin will hold a memorial for Mrs Bolden, whose body was found in a Bedford river last week.

The 39-year-old, who was assistant headteacher at the school, had been missing since Easter Sunday after leaving her home in Waterloo Road, Bedford.

Today, staff and pupils will be attending a special Mass in memory of her at 1.30pm.

They have also started a book of condolences and have created their own personal tributes.
