After a child was hit by a car outside of a school residents have joined forces with councillors to petition for traffic calming measures.
Around 100 signatories have backed a campaign calling on Redbridge Council to look at road safety in New North Road, Hainault, following an accident earlier this year.
Speaking on behalf of neighbours in Hannards Way and New North Road, Barbara Foster said: "We have long thought New North Road is treacherous with cars speeding up and down.

"We are asking for the council to investigate and look forward and see what can be done, whether that will be traffic calming measure or speedbumps."
