Daniel, aged 30, from Ladybrook has just launched his own clothing line in memory of his sister Abby Hucknall, who was killed in 2012 in Scotland where she was living at the time.

Jane MacDonald, her boyfriend’s 38-year-old mum, was also killed in the crash.

Daniel who works at Mansfield Computer Store, Church Street, Mansfield, said he had wanted to start a clothing line for some time.

He said: “Abby was bubbly and cheeky – when I rang her when she was in Scotland she would put on this Scottish accent – it was dreadful but it made me laugh – I use to tell her to speak English.

“She was comical and lit up the room with her smile.”

Daniel also has his own YouTube channel named “Daniel Stride Vlogs” was inspired to make his clothing line by other YouTubers, including famous beauty vlogger Zoella.

He said: “They are also custom made. When I was designing them it was quite emotional for me. Her favourite colours were red and blue – she would be proud of them.

“I’m nervous about what people think, but I’m excited to have them up for sale. ”

The tops will start from £20 and are available to order from Mansfield Computer Store.

Some profits will be donated to Make a Wish, which was the charity chosen for Abby’s funeral.

Daniel said: “I didn’t know what her last wish was – she was taken too soon.”
