MORE than 400 people filled the streets outside the Commemoration Hall in Huntingdon last week to demand safety measures on the A141 where 16-year-old Warren Hay, known to his friends as Wazza, was hit and killed by a car.
Protesters young and old turned out in force to support the teenager's parents, Maxine and John, who have vowed never to give up the fight to provide a safe means of crossing the stretch of road where their son was injured.
At a meeting on Thursday involving the Warren Hay Safety Action Group, both Huntingdon Town Council and Cambridgeshire County Council were accused of failing the area's children.
In a passionate plea for action, Mrs Hay told the town council meeting: "You have destroyed my life. You have taken my son from me."
Support for the safety measures - which would provide children with a safe walking or cycling route to Huntingdon's Jubilee Park - continues to grow, with more than 6,500 supporting the demands.
