Ruby's campaign for school crossing raised with PM by Suella

Suella Braverman has taken a Fareham pupil's campaign for a road crossing in Locks Heath to the Prime Minister.

Eleven-year-old Ruby Lloyd is campaigning for a pedestrian crossing near Hook-with-Warsash C of E Academy on Warsash Road in Locks Heath, in order to promote walking to school and increase safety for pupils.

After raising the matter with Hampshire County Council, Suella took Ruby's campaign to Parliament where she championed her cause during Prime Minister's Questions.

In response, Prime Minister Theresa May said:

"It is very good to see young people caring passionately about their local area and campaigning for it, and it is vital that children go to school in a safe environment.

"This is, of course, an issue for the local authority, but I wish Ruby the very best for her campaign."

Commenting afterwards, Suella said:

"I support Ruby's campaign, together with her head teacher Mrs Willoughby and local councillor Trevor Cartwright, and I will keep pushing Hampshire County Council to make the necessary changes on this busy road."
