NOT ENOUGH: A school crossing is still unsafe, say a town’s leaders.

A petition for extra measures to make Kings Road pelican crossing between Berkhamsted School for girls aged 11-16 and its prep school safer was signed by 410 people.

Since then over-growth near road warning signs has been cut back and police have been monitoring the road for drivers who are speeding.

But at a Berkhamsted Town Council meeting, member Ian Reay said: “I do not think they did enough, and I believe the person who made the petition is still not happy.”
