A councillor in Buckley, Flintshire, is urging the authority to take action over a set of "dangerous" security bollards.

The barriers in question have been deemed unsuitable for a housing estate in the town and councillor Carol Ellis wants more to be done about it. The bollards were originally installed to stop motorists using Charles Church as a cut through but they were built too far apart.

Cllr Ellis is worried that they are causing a dangerous hazard for local school children as vehicles attempt to mount the kerb and squeeze through the gap and it is believed that reflective panels will significantly help the situation.

A spokesman for the council told the Flintshire Chronicle: "We were made aware of local concerns about the effectiveness of bollards already in place a couple of weeks ago. In response to this the developers have since added an extra bollard as agreed with the county council to ensure vehicles can not pass."

Residents in Backwell, North Somerset, have also called for more bollards to be installed so that a cash machine can be put back on the high street.
