The owner of a school in Sidmouth, Devon, has called for the installation of security bollards around the site to ensure the safety of its pupils.

Darrell Dumenil, boss of Sidmouth International School, which teaches children from all over the world to speak English, believes that barriers need to be installed on the town's High Street in order to protect students getting to and from school.

He also added that lorries create congestion around the area as well as speeding cars and vans causing hazards for pedestrians.

However, the council has said that the pavements around the education centre are very narrow and by putting a set of bollards in would make the streets even tighter.

Mr Dumenil told the Sidmouth Herald: "At some stage some kid is going to get run over, and then all hell will break loose. We do appreciate the [county] council putting in loading restrictions, but they are no good if nobody takes any notice of them."
