Redbridge Council has launched a campaign to help children stay safe whilst travelling to and from school.
Created in partnership with the Met Police, Safer Routes to Education will focus on the sharing of information across a number of platforms.
Featured subjects will include how to report crime anonymously, what children should do in an emergency and how best to travel by bike and public transport.
The campaign will be running from today (June 7) until the same date next month.
Councillor Elaine Norman, cabinet member for children and young people, said collaborating with the Met has allowed the council to "pinpoint the best advice and resources to share with children".
