Mother whose son was injured by tram says authorities have "blood on their hands"

A mother whose son was nearly killed by a tram at the same spot where a teenage girl died this week has accused the authorities of "having blood on their hands".

Kris Burton suffered horrific injuries eight years ago, when he was struck on a crossing near Hucknall in Nottinghamshire in 2004.

Lindsay Inger, who was 13, was killed in a collision there on Wednesday. In total, there have been three deaths at the crossing since Mr Burton's accident.

Central News has contacted Nottingham Express Transit. They confirmed an investigation is underway but did not wish to comment any further at this stage.

Detectives investigating the death of Lindsey Inger are appealing for passengers travelling on the tram through Hucknall, at around seven o' clock on Wednesday evening, to come forward with any information.
