Family of Caleb Hollow killed on Hayle road continue their fight for speed restrictions.
THE FAMILY of a young boy who died after being knocked over on a busy Hayle road have vowed to do whatever it takes to bring in speed restrictions along the stretch.
Caleb Michael Hollow died on December 13 after being hit while crossing Loggans Road.
Now his mum Dawn Chapman has said she and other local people are willing to sit in the road and stage a demonstration to get their voices heard.
"We are going to barricade the road and stop all the traffic," said Mrs Chapman.

"Until there is a crossing put there we will not stop fighting. If there was a crossing there already my son would still be here."
Eleven-year-old Caleb was hit as he crossed the road to catch a bus to Bodriggy Academy where he was a pupil. He was flown to Frenchay Hospital, Bristol but after a week doctors said there was nothing they could do to save him and his mum was forced to turn off his life support machine.
Since his death a chorus of voices have called for speed restrictions and traffic calming along the road.
A number of local people also turned out in force before Christmas to discuss what they believe needs to be done to make the road safer.
Listening to their concerns were members of Cornwall Council's highways team as well as police and Hayle councillor John Pollard.
He has since taken on the cause and is pressing Cornwall Council to look into the possibility of introducing speed measures on Loggans Road.
"I am pushing it and doing everything I can but these things do take time," he said.
As part of the road campaign, a petition has been handed out around Hayle calling for a safe crossing to be introduced. A Facebook page dedicated to the fight has also been set up with hundreds of people pledging their support.
"We want to get the message across that we won't stop," said Mrs Chapman. "It will only be a matter of time before this happens again."
