The family of six-year-old Darren Hill, who died after he was crushed by a reversing dustbin wagon are planning to sue the City of York Council, reports the Yorkshire Post (p8).

The family is also urging the council to introduce a new policy to ensure that drivers must be guided by a colleague when reversing in residential areas.

A council spokesperson said: 'Following this tragic accident, a full investigation was begun by the police and Health and Safety Executive.

'At this stage, nothing from their initial inquiries has prompted a need to change working practices.

'However, as the inquiries continue the council will obviously act upon any recommendations the Health and Safety Executive puts forward.'
