NEWSOME residents are calling for traffic calming measures to be reviewed after a toddler was killed by a car.
Elm Manor Tenants' and Residents' Association - which covers the area close to where two-year-old Callam Cross died - will meet tonight to look at ways of easing traffic on busy Newsome Road.
Callam, the grandson of Anthony and Lorraine O'Neill who live on Newsome Road, died after running into the path of a car last Thursday at 7.45pm.
The accident happened 40 yards below the mini-roundabout at the junction with Stile Common Road.
A police investigation is still continuing.
Yesterday the Examiner reported how a memorial site set up at the side of the road in remembrance of the toddler had been raided by heartless thieves.
A football placed at the scene by Callam's family was stolen, leaving his grieving family even more distraught.
Today the Examiner can reveal the memento has been returned to the memorial.
It now sits among hundreds of flowers as a tribute to the tragic youngster.
The meeting to discuss the accident at will be held at 55, Manor Street, Newsome, at 5.15pm today.
