FENLAND Road Safety Campaigner Graham Chappell visited 10 Downing Street to hand over a report setting out the progress made during the past year.

Mr Chappell was met by Steve Barclay, prospective parliamentary candidate for North-East Cambs, who accepted the report so it could be passed on to Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

The campaign was set up in February 2008 following the death of nine-year-old Charlotte Walker after a road accident along the Sixteen Foot Bank.

A well-supported online petition to the Prime Ministers' Office asked for help towards the installation of safety barriers and speed cameras.

He added: "Additional support and financial assistance, where possible, from national Government, would make a huge difference to what can be achieved for the people of and visitors to Fenland."
