The family of a nine-year old boy killed when he was struck at a pelican crossing say the three-year sentence given to the driver is disappointing.

Jayden Lee McIvor died when he was struck by a car being driven by Raja Khan in Haybridge Road, Telford.

Khan, 19, of Leegomery, Telford, was given three years' detention after admitting dangerous driving at Shrewsbury Crown Court.

Jayden's father Ross said the sentence should have been "much higher".

Khan was told he would serve his sentence in a young offenders' institution.

PC Garry Moody, from West Mercia Police, said: "The case sends out a strong reminder to all drivers, especially when in built-up areas, to keep to speed limits and to be ready to stop on an approach to a pedestrian crossing."
