A mother from Essex whose teenage daughter was killed by a driver with poor eyesight, is backing a campaign for motorists to get their sight tested every two years.

Jackie McCord's daughter, Cassie, was hit when a car mounted the pavement she was walking along in Colchester.

The 87-year-old driver had been stopped by police three days before and was unable to read a number plate from 20m away.

Jackie will help road safety charity Brake launch its new campaign.
