A schoolgirl has been commended after highlighting concerns over pedestrian safety on a Bo'ness road, prompting safety signage to be considered.

After her cat was run over on Borrowstoun Road during the summer, Beth Pullen decided to speak to councillor Ann Ritchie about the issue of fast traffic and the absence of warnings to drivers, reports the Linlithgow Gazette.

As a result of her efforts, new warning signs have been installed for each direction.

Speaking to the newspaper, 13-year-old Beth said: "I feel quite proud and happy that they are up. I hope when drivers see that sign they slow down and remember there’s pedestrians walking on the road."

This news come after the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) urged the government to incorporate work-related traffic accidents into its official statistics.

IOSH wants to see incidents recorded under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 act.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801226762-ADNFCR
