A full list of the names of 49 people who were killed in the worst shooting in recent US history includes a woman who went clubbing with her son and threw herself in front of the gunman to protect him.

Among the men and women killed at the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub were also a student, a basketball star on her way to a college scholarship, a bartender, a bouncer and a couple talking of marriage.

They were friends, parents, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles, and their deaths on 12 June left a city in mourning for innocent people killed by gunman Omar Mateen as he opened fire on a club full of revellers on a packed Latin-themed night at a gay club.
