Quotes

"It will also cut carbon emissions by 5,000 tonnes annually and reduce light pollution. These lights are plotted on the map available at: www.kent.gov.uk/streetlights .”"
"More broadly it is also essential that we do all we can to tackle some of root causes of the problems, in particular the drinking culture. York is a fantastic place to go out at night and the fact that it is such a safe city is one of its major attractions. We need to do all we can to ensure it remains as safe as possible. Over the coming months this will be a real focus for us all and I am looking forward to working with City of York Council and partners in taking this forward.”"
Chaz said: "You really are never too good to be a better rider - it's as simple as that. I've been working for 15 years to try and be better on the track and that applies on the road as well. There are so many more variables on the road and I think people can get a little bit over confident, but you are never too good. You never know what's around the corner."
The Lib Dem MP said that while the authorities had made improvements, and were planning more, the death of the 18-year-old student "must force us all to consider what more can be done"
