Inquest of schoolgirl knocked down by skip truck to take place today

Sophia McDonald was killed just yards from her Bell Green home on Henley Road, on October 18 2016

The St Laurence’s Primary School pupil was killed just yards from her Bell Green home on Henley Road, on October 18 2016.

Sophia’s mum Yvonne Clarke told how her family was “overwhelmed and deeply grateful” to the people of Coventry, particularly Bell Green.

Hundreds of mourners gathered to pay their respects at Sophia’s funeral, which took place at Coventry Cathedral on November 28.

The skip lorry involved belonged to Tom White Waste, based in Longford, and had been returning to the yard at the time tragedy struck.
