Seatbelt campaign: Mother says living without son is like being 'stabbed with a knife everyday'

A mother who has allowed footage of the crash that killed her son to be released says having to live without him is like somebody "stabbing a knife in her everyday".

12 year old Amar Atwal died two days after a crash in West Bromwich in 2015. His mother Sukhi hopes that by releasing the video of the crash, it will serve as a warning to others and save lives.

Primary school children speak out about seatbelt safety

These children at a primary school in Walsall have been learning about the dangers of not wearing a seatbelt.

West Midlands Police Special Constable Clive Broadhurst visits classrooms across the region to speak to children on the subject.

It's all part of road safety awareness week which is urging motorists to make sure all passengers wear seatbelts and that children are safely strapped in.

Research has shown wearing a safety belt reduces your chances of being killed in a car crash by 50%.
