CROSSING: This is a recipe for tragedy

Twice lately I’ve come across a scene of total chaos in the centre of Alnwick at roughly 3.15pm.

Children and adults coming out of the Catholic school in Bondgate Without have to cross the road without a school crossing patrol. Imagine the scene as they try to cross the road with oncoming traffic. They walk in front of cars, hoping they will stop.

It’s only matter of time before there is a tragedy.
