Concerned parents fear a child will be knocked down and killed unless action is taken to stop speeding motorists.

Parents say it is a daily challenge crossing the A186 Rotary Road in Shiremoor to get their children to and from Backworth Primary School.

They say that despite pedestrian crossings being in place on the road – which separates Moorside and Backworth – drivers are continuing to speed along the dual carriageway, which has a 40mph speed limit in place.
