Parent calls for warning signs on Berkshire footpath

A parent has called for safety signage to be erected on a Berkshire footpath, after her daughter was trampled by a herd of cows.

Sixteen-year-old Emma Gregory suffered bruised ribs, cracked teeth and a dislocated jaw during the incident, before a local resident notified the emergency services and she was taken to hospital, reports the BBC.

Emma's mother Christine said: "The anger is about the fact that there weren't any signs at all on this public footpath. Kids are going to be walking through it this time of year."

It is thought that the herd felt threatened by a dog in the field and attacked the teenager as a means of protecting their young.

A report by EDP24 has outlined that youths who live on an estate in Poringland are putting their lives in danger by playing near an electrical substation.

Steve Fowkes told the news provider that the site is not fully safe.
