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.
