Meg's Campaign: 'She was worth every bit of campaigning'

The mother of a little girl who died when a wall collapsed says she hopes lessons can be learnt from her daughter's death.

Three year old Meg Burgess was walking home with her mother in Meliden in Denbighshire in 2008 when she died.

A builder from Kinmel Bay was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence and jailed for two years.

Lindsay Burgess now wants to raise awareness of 'cowboy builders' and have set up a Facebook page Meg's Campaign where people can share their own experiences.
