The death of a boy who was hit by a car outside his school was an accident, a coroner has ruled.

William Avery-Wright, 13, was running late for a rugby match when he was hit by a Land Rover while crossing the road at Worth School, near Crawley.

The inquest at Crawley Town Hall heard he should have been supervised by an adult while crossing the road.

Assistant deputy coroner Bridget Dolan said: "A school rule was not enforced or adhered to."
