This is a dreadful story and not the first time a motorcyclist has had a serious accident at this junction. A few years ago a biker traveling towards West End ran into the back of a car turning right into Southern Road. Further down another motorcyclist was killed at the junction by the church. Could there be a case to reduce the speed limit to 30mph along this stretch of road?

Bubbles was childminder to my 3 boys when they were very young and was especially kind to my youngest when he lost his beloved toy dog. Together they went around our local area for hours posting notices and knocking on doors. Their efforts paid off and there was an emotional reunion. It was an example of Bubbles' huge compassion and kindness that didn't go into sentimentality. She was always a stalwart of the children's toy run charity and other causes. We don't really know what happened, but two of my boys she cared for grew up and had their own motorbikes. Both were blameless victims of careless car drivers who gave them no chance to avoid nasty collisions. Support the Do You See Us Now rally on Friday March 7th. God bless you and thankyou, Bubbles.
