Local resident Nicola Mclaren is campaigning to make Aycliffe safer. Too often people travel really fast round the area and lorries seeking a cut through get stuck.
So we need to get the lorries out and a 20 mph speed limit in. That was the clear view of children at the local primary school I visited who were all aware of the issue and wanting action.
With local councillor Chris Precious I was delighted to support Nicola's campaign. I was also very impressed with the primary school - the kids were really polite, well behaved and managed to keep still for nearly an hour!
