A campaigner fighting for safety improvements on the A697 has called for urgent action, after discovering it has double the average number of accidents.

Most recent figures from the Department for Transport show that a rural A-class road has an average of 0.19 collisions per million kilometres.

But data seen by Coun Glen Sanderson has revealed that the A697 has a worse record, with 0.38 collisions per vehicle kilometre (K), up to the end of 2011.
