Video: Safety campaign aimed at child pedestrians launched

Children from Bracken Edge Primary School in Chapeltown are some of the first Leeds school pupils to learn about a new national road safety campaign aimed at child pedestrians.

The "Tales of the Road" campaign is being rolled out across 50 Leeds primary schools in an innovative new partnership between the Department for Transport and Leeds United.

Representatives from the club's community education team, supported by road safety officers from Leeds Council, are teaching primary school children about how to find safe places to cross the road - with the help of quizzes, games and a website developed as part of the campaign.

Leeds United is one of four national football clubs taking part in the campaign - all the clubs are based in regions with higher than average casualty numbers for child pedestrians aged six to 11.
