The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above

How many more serious accidents do there have to be at the junction of Mairscough Lane, Southport Road and Church Lane (by St. Thomas’ Church and just down the road from Church View Farm) in Lydiate before Sefton Council takes some action?

This latest one (on Wednesday evening) was an amazing escape for the car driver in particular but it could well have been so much worse. Indeed, there have been deaths at this infamous accident black spot and the crunches of car metal keep on coming.

My good friend and fellow Lydiate Parish Councillor Edie Pope has long fought for improved safety here and she is back on the safety war path again following this latest accident.
