THE heartbroken father of tragic youngster Kieran Coupe has demanded that lessons be learned from his son’s death.
Kieran’s father Colin Lambert, said: “I hope they take further action to prevent anything like this happening again.
“The Highways Agency says it’s against the law for pedestrians to be on the motorway, but what are they doing to enforce that law?
“The police have put recommendations forward, too, which is good.”
Speaking about his son’s loss, he added: “Time helps a little, but a part of me has been taken away forever.”
The inquest found the boys had probably passed through a gap in boundary fencing.
Giving evidence on Tuesday, Roy Woods, area manager for the Highways Agency at the time, said: “Although it is our policy to clearly mark the boundary of the motorway, we are not obliged by law to do so anymore as we would be with any other road.
“I think generally the public are aware of the dangers.”
