Unsafe cycling

CALLS have been made for a safety review on a busy road after a 12-year-old boy suffered serious leg injuries when he was knocked off his bike.

"We've had three accidents in the last six months and it's not so long ago another boy was knocked off his bike. It's time something was done before someone else gets hurt."

"Motorists know there is a speed camera at the top of the road and at the bottom, but they put their foot down on this stretch, because the road opens up and there is nothing to force them to slow down."

Elizabeth Thompson, 61, of Meigh Road, believes the main problem is parked cars on the pavement.
