Calls are being made for safety measures to be introduced on a stretch of Whitley Bay seafront.

Following the tragic death of William Dorey on Sunday evening on the A193 The Links, residents have been calling for road safety measures to be introduced to act as a deterrent for any speeding motorists. Residents have since made appeals to North Tyneside Council and Northumbria Police in the last few days for speed cameras to be installed or other measures to stop cars breaking the 40mph limit on the dual carriageway. Now we are asking readers to have their say and take part in our poll, with the results being put to the authorities.
