VIDEO: Child road safety is focus of Lower Beeding campaign

A child fataility could happen in Lower Beeding if road safety measures are not introduced - a campaigning grandparent has warned.

Gevin White, who lives in Leechpond Hill, believes changes are needed and has collected more than 200 signatures backing his proposals.

In particular he is lobbying for a 40mph limit to be imposed on roads leading into the village, and a 30mph limit at the top of Leechpond Hill around the road’s crossing near the Plough Inn.

“How do you think the village would feel to lose somebody? What if it was a child or a parent?” he said.

“This is about the parents and the children that we will protect.”
