Parents want a permanent crossing

Traffic was stopped by a human pedestrian crossing protest outside of a Derby primary school as part of a road safety campaign.

Parents and residents want to see a permanent crossing outside the Grampian Primary School at Sinfin.

The campaign has been organised by Barbara Hall, whose six-year-old daughter needed hospital treatment after being hit by a car in February.

Derby City Council said a full site investigation was under way.

Mrs Hall said her daughter's accident "could have been more serious".

The city council said it hoped to resolve the situation by working with the campaigners.

It also said there are plans to provide interim measures such as guard rails and greater parking controls outside the school.


The campaign aims to make the road safer for pupils
