Traffic barriers may prove a worthy addition to one Sheffield road, which one local mum believes still poses a danger to members of the public.

Leasa Ward has made the plea for more safety measures to be installed in the Manor Road area of the city after her son was injured after being hit by a car last year.

A Smiley SID sign has been put up since the incident in June last year that warns drivers of their speed, but Ms Ward does not believe this is enough.

Speaking to BBC News, she said: "I've seen a lot of accidents on that spot where Mitchell was knocked over since I've lived here and the Smiley SIDs are not enough."

The nine-year-old was struck at the junction between Harborough Avenue and Fretson Road.

Campaigners recently expressed concerns over a new Talbot Heath development, which they believe may considerably increase congestion in the area, revealed the Bournemouth Echo.
