A ROAD in Swadlincote is temporarily closed by police as more than 200 people walk in memory of a 21-year-old.

Mark Haywood, of Castle Road, Castle Gresley, died on Tuesday after he was struck by a car in William Nadin Way.

There have been several memorial events for Mark since his death but the largest came today where family and friends gathered in the road and walked down to the crash site to hold a minute's silence.

They are now making their way to the skate park, in Woodhouse Street, Swadlincote.

Deryshire police cordoned off the entire length of the road.
