School road closure 'protects pupils'

A narrow road outside a school is shut daily during rush hour to protect children from traffic and pollution after campaigners secured permission.

Bollards are put up on Macklin Street in Camden, north London, when parents are dropping off and picking up their children.

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School said the 800m (2,600ft) long road was previously too dangerous for pupils.

The school said it had made the combination of "small children and really narrow pavements" much safer.
