COMMUNITIES across Weston and beyond all wore pink for the day as a tribute to seven-year-old April Reeves.

April died after being involved in a collision with a car while cycling alongside the A371 with her mother and brother on May 28.

Schools, community groups, businesses, families and friends all raided their wardrobes for something pink, April’s favourite colour, to wear in her honour on June 10.

As reported in the Mercury last week, hundreds of pink-clad campaigners also marched along the A371 in Locking that day, in the hope of securing a lower speed limit and new safety measures.

The A371 is a 60mph road and is the main route linking Weston with Locking, the new Parklands development, Banwell and villages such as Winscombe and Sandford.

Police are still investigating the incident but the driver of the car involved has not been arrested.

The exact circumstances of the collision are not yet known, but the case has been referred to the coroner.
