A community in Jedburgh is calling on the council to stop motorists from speeding down their street.

At the end of June, five-year-old Lucy Rae was knocked down by a car on Priors Meadow, and broke her ankle.

Her mother has now launched a petition asking Scottish Borders Council to install speed bumps on the street, and it's already been signed by more than one hundred people.

Arlene Rae says there are a large number of children in the area, but that often drivers can't see them because of cars parked along the street.

Scottish Borders Council says it's already investigated the accident in which Lucy Rae was knocked down.

But it says it won't install more speed control measures, because it needs to apply them to roads with more traffic:

The circumstances of the incident at Priors Meadow have been investigated, including discussions with Police Scotland, and a traffic survey undertaken.
