The grieving parents of a Hayle schoolboy, hit by a car as he crossed the road, vow to make sure no other family has to go through it.

Eleven year old Caleb Hollow died in hospital after the collision on Loggans Road just days before Christmas.

Mum Dawn told Pirate FM, "Everybody that's ever known him has said what a lovely boy he was. He was an outgoing boy, loved going down the park, doted on his brother and sister. It just still feels like a dream."

Caleb was seriously injured at around 8.40am on 7th December and was taken to Treliske before being transferred to Frenchay hospital in Bristol.

He lost his fight a few days later.

He is the second child to have lost their lives on the stretch of road and now his family is launching a campaign to have a new crossing put in.

Dawn said: "It's only going to be a matter of time before it happens to another little child. No parents should ever have to go through what we're going through. Something has got to be done and we're going to do our damndest to make sure that something gets done."

Locals are supporting the family in their campaign, warning it is an accident waiting to happen.

They are launching a petition to put in safety measures on the road.
