A petition has been set up campaigning for safety measures on an Eastbourne road after a serious accident involving a child yesterday (December 17).

Bobbi Piper, 19, who works at the Farm at Friday Street set up the petition for traffic lights or a zebra crossing to be put in place on Friday Street.

She said, “It is time something was done about it.”

This comes after a five-year-old girl was hit by a car on the road yesterday at 3.15pm, and the junction with Shinewater Lane.

She was airlifted to St George’s Hospital in Tooting and is in a critical condition.
