The zebra that lost its lights (sorry Kipling)(June 25, 2009)

An important and busy route to two schools is now provided with two Zebra crossings in Boreham Road after years of campaigning.
They have also provided safe crossing points to residents out late in the evening walking their dogs or on their way home from a popular nearby social club.
"Take a look. I know you will get it sorted out,' said a local resident. "The crossing by the Highbury Park and the Prestbury Drive junction is not lit."
He admitted he was a member of the club but that he had voted for Paul at the local election and went on to describe a near miss.
