Honouring Grace

Mourners pay tribute to Grace Millane at a memorial set up in her honour at Queenstown's lakefront

About a hundred mourners have gathered on the shores of Lake Wakatipu to pay tribute to slain English tourist Grace Millane.

People brought flowers, candles, and pictures of Miss Millane to the vigil, organised by Queenstown woman Amanda Morris.

Local Ngai Tahu members also paid tribute with waiata and a karakia.

Miss Millane, who was in Auckland on her OE, was last seen alive on December 1, the day before her 22nd birthday.

Her body was discovered on Sunday in the Waitakere Ranges.

A 26-year-old man has been charged with her murder.
