Balloons mark year since death
THE family of a 16-year-old who died in a moped crash have released balloons to mark a year passing since his death.
Conor Hall passed away at Frenchay Hospital five days after his moped crashed on Charlton Road, on June 11 last year.
Friends and family of the Downend School pupil left hundreds of tributes to him on social networking websites, and the Post website.
Conor, pictured, failed to clip up his helmet and his family launched the "Clip up for Conor" campaign.

Even Formula One racing star Jenson Button pledged his support for the campaign on Twitter.
Yesterday friends and family gathered in Downend to release balloons in his memory.
Conor's father, Tony, said: "As a parent I can't even begin to describe to you what it feels like to lose a son, a child.
"Every parent's worst nightmare came true for us last year but as a family we've dealt with it the best way we can.
"But we're very grateful for all the people who attended today and made the effort to come and remember Conor and what a smashing little chap he was."
