CCTV footage before Wareham toddler crash death

CCTV footage has been released of the moments before a toddler was killed on a pedestrian crossing when a lorry driver went through a red light.

Dean Phoenix, 44, hit three-year-old Jaiden Mangan in Wareham, Dorset, in March 2018.

He was cleared by a jury of causing death by dangerous driving, but had earlier admitted the lesser charge of causing death by careless driving.

The footage shows the road was partially blocked by a car parked illegally on the zig zag lines, and Jaiden, his mum Yasmin, and sister, approaching on the pavement.
