Road safety reviewed after young girl died in Guernsey

The safety of a road where a girl was killed last year is being reviewed by Guernsey's Environment Department.

Seven-year-old Mai-Lea Falla died in November after being hit by a quad bike on Summerfield Road, near the junction with Vale Avenue.

An inquest found her death was accidental. Earlier this year Sgt John Tostevin called for a 25mph speed limit on the road.

The Environment Department said it had been monitoring speeds in the area.

A spokesman for the department said: "The Environment Department and the police have been working together in an attempt to understand what, if any, combination of road safety measures could be implemented to reduce the risk of something like this ever happening again.

"As part of the review, the department has installed equipment... to see whether current parking arrangements or any other existing factors are influencing driving behaviour in the area.

"These speed surveys have now been completed and will be incorporated into a report that is being prepared for consideration by the Environment Board."
