More than 9,000 people have so far signed a heartbroken mum’s petition to Parliament to stop drivers using phones at the wheel.

Alice Husband launched the petition after her son, Seth Dixon (7), was killed in a road accident at Tydd Gote.

A coroner said driver Amy Asker’s use of a mobile phone – hands free on speakerphone – had contributed to Seth’s unfortunate death in December 2014.

Alice publicly forgave Ms Asker, and says the driver could have been “any one of many of us who have been told in the past hands free is okay”.

The mum is pointing to evidence that shows all types of phone calls in a car are distracting for drivers and says “saving a life needs to be put before a phone call”.
