A memorial has been created for a 10-year-old boy who was killed in a hit-and-run.

Samuel Crocker died after he was hit by a car in Crediton, Devon, in February.

His family and friends from the First Crediton Scout Group designed the 8ft (2.5m) tribute, in the style of a totem pole, for the town's Scout Memorial Garden.

In July, Cameron Trivett admitted causing Samuel's death and was jailed for four years.

A spokeswoman for the scout group, which Samuel was part of, said the pole included the scouting symbol at the top, the First Crediton Scout group neckerchief and images including some of the things he enjoyed such as nature, football and camping.
