Road crossing to honour dead boy
Scott Cook
Scott's parents were devastated to have lost him
A pedestrian crossing that was built in memory of an 11-year-old who died in a road accident in 2005 has been officially opened.

Scott Cook's sister, Abbey, performed the opening ceremony on the A46 near Stroud in Gloucestershire. Scott's parents also took part.

'Scott's Crossing' was installed after a campaign by local people.

"He was so sensitive towards others and totally unique," his parents Diane and Russell said.

"We are absolutely devastated to have lost him, but we feel gifted to have been given him."
