Council statement following child bus death

Swindon Borough Council has issued ITV News with a statement, in response to calls by the mother of Caitlin Hunt for improvements to be made to the crossing where she died.

The traffic calming measures were introduced in late 2007 to reduce the number of accidents and to address the concerns of local residents. As a result, a series of consultation events were held prior to the scheme being approved.

Over the most recent five-year period since the speed tables and 20miles per hour limit were introduced, there has been one slight accident, prior to last week's tragedy.
