We warned them this would happen

Regular readers will have noticed our campaign with the West London Residents Association and Guide Dogs for the Blind against the dangerous and expensive shared surface schemes in Kensington and Chelsea.  You can read about the issue here and here.


Our worst fears about the shared surface scheme very nearly came true this week.  The London Informer reveals a near miss outside Sloane Square station:


“At around 10am on Thursday, the campaigners' worst fears nearly came true.


A couple accompanied by two small children, one in a pushchair and a boy aged around four, met outside the station.


Mr Terblanche, who stands outside the kiosk when families are around, spotted the older child running towards the road.


On Monday, he said: " I caught him just on the edge, about six inches from the car. I just put my arms around him.


"I was willing for the car to hit me in order to save the boy. He was inches from being badly hurt."


Please take this crucial opportunity to contact Kensington and Chelsea’s councillors about this.  Their contact details can be found here.
