Work starts to put in a crossing at the spot where a Cornish schoolboy was hit by a car and later died.

Caleb Hollow from Hayle lost his fight for life just days before Christmas 2012.

The 11 year olds parents launched an awareness campaign after he became the second child to die at Loggans Road.

John Lander runs a B&B further down and wants to see extra safety measures put in place: "People come from Hayle, around the corner where the roundabout is, doesn't ease up and stop and it won't be long before somebody's actually killed there; this roundabout affects what's going on up the road.

"It's definitely welcomed but they also need to do something about this here roundabout. Either slow down signs, stop signs or something just to ease the speed of the traffic up. We're afraid sometimes to cross the road because of the speed of the cars coming round."
