Sherwood MP Mark Spencer is inviting concerned residents to discuss ideas for road safety improvements in Hucknall after an 11-year-old-boy was critically injured.

The boy was struck by two vehicles on Tuesday, October 20, in Nabbs Lane at the junction with Godber Road and remains in a critical condition at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

Mr Spencer has called the meeting at the Nabbs Inn at 11.30am this Saturday. He said: “There gave been a number of road traffic incidents on Nabbs Lane in recent years, despite there being some provision of crossings and a 20mph limit near the school.

“I have this week been in contact with the county council about the potential for further road safety measures - but these problems will not go away unless something is done. It’s important the community comes together to find the right solutions and if we can speak with one voice that adds a lot of weight to what we say.”

Children who were playing in a park when a boy was critically injured in a collision in Hucknall, may have information to help police.

A police spokesman said: “There were children playing in the park, just off Nabbs Lane, at the time of the incident and investigating officers are keen to speak with them. If you were at the park, or you know that your children were there, please contact police.”

Anyone who thinks they saw the victim before or after the collision should also get in touch on 101 quoting incident 770 of October 20.
