Over a week since a young boy was hit by a car on a crossing in the centre of Frome, the mum says she has yet to have any update from police.
When her son was hit as he crossed the road at Iceland June 14 the mother was furious to learn that there are NO fixed speed cameras in Frome which would have showed the car which sped over the crossing.
Police confirmed to Frome Nub News that there are NO fixed speed cameras from Avon and Somerset in the town centre of Frome. They have mobile CCTV cameras but those as the name suggests move around Frome.
Other speed cameras which may have recorded the incident are run by the council.
