From Morning Report, 7:57 am on 1 August 2019

Advocacy group Living Streets Aotearoa is frustrated a coroner has said children need an adult to walk with them to and from school.

In his ruling on the case of six-year-old Carla Neems - who was killed by a rubbish truck in Gisborne two years ago - coroner Tim Scott said she should have been accompanied by an adult on her way home.

Susie Ferguson spoke to Andy Smith, the president of Living Streets Aotearoa.
