HUNDREDS have backed a petition calling for a speed camera to be installed on a Paisley road where a young teenager was killed at the weekend. 

The petition has been launched in the wake of the death of 15-year-old Robyn Fryar.

As previously reported by The Gazette, the popular teenage girl was out with friends at around 2am on Sunday and was crossing Glenburn Road, near Fereneze Drive, when she was struck.

Now the community has reacted to the tragedy by taking action in the form of a petition.

Barbara Muir started the campaign, which has attracted more than 1,000 signatures. 

She said: "This stretch of road has no speed camera.

"It's too late to save Robyn Fryar's life but this is when installing a speed camera could save the next person's life."

Friends and family of the St Andrew's Academy pupil will have the chance to pay tribute to Robyn by signing a book of remembrance. 

The school will be open between 10.30am and 1pm on Tuesday and Wednesday and school chaplains will also be on hand to offer support. 

Two men were due to appear in Paisley Sheriff Court on Monday in connection with her death.
