RESIDENTS want a fatal accident inquiry after a woman died when a lorry ploughed into her living room.

Catherine Bonner, 55, was crushed under the debris of her flat after the lorry smashed into the building in Main Road, Fairlie, on Thursday.

Ms Bonner, a carer, had moved to the North Ayrshire village from Glasgow with partner James McColl last year.

Community council secretary David Telford said: "The major fight our village has is to try to ensure that a fatal accident inquiry is held."

Plans for a bypass round Fairlie were dropped in 2003.
