Carlisle mother backs introducing road safety to the national curriculum

In Cumbria last year, 17 young people were either killed or seriously hurt in a road accident every day.

Road safety isn't part of the national curriculum in England, but it is delivered in schools in Scotland, and the charity Brake has campaigned for a long time for it to be made a priority throughout the UK.

One mother from Carlisle is now using her own time to educate youngsters about road safety.

Kate Walby has been to meet her:

Cumbria Police are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man from Carlisle who's been missing for nearly a fortnight.

Caspar Capel, 43, was last seen at Eden Housing, Penrith, on Wednesday 14 January 2015.

It's believed he may be in the Brampton or Penrith area.

He's described as white, of slim build, with short black hair and a beard.

He was last seen wearing a dark jacket with green coloured sleeves, black trousers and a flat cap.

“It has now been nearly a fortnight since Mr Capel went missing, and we are growing increasingly concerned for his welfare.

“I would encourage anyone who may have seen Mr Capel to get in touch with any information they may have. I would also urge Mr Capel if he sees this appeal to let us know he is safe and well.”

– Sgt Grant Stevens, Cumbria Constabulary
