A Bristol MP has welcomed a new road safety campaign after the tragic death of a three year old crushed by a runaway trailer.

Freddie's family have been determined that some good should come of their son's tragic death and we welcome this new Government campaign as a tribute to Freddie's memory.

– Karin Smyth MP

"That this campaign is now being run also underlines the value of their persistence and their refusal to allow Freddie's death to be in vain."
