What Rospa posters say about the changing face of Britain

It's 100 years since the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (Rospa) was set up after a rise in traffic accidents.

Forty years ago it moved its headquarters to Birmingham and the city's library will host an exhibition of its most famous safety posters next year.

Over the past century, campaigns have ranged from warning people about untied shoelaces to advising women "sensible shoes protect your feet".

The organisation says its role remains vital as accidents are still the biggest killer of children and young people.
