Pupils in Armley made the most of a traffic-free street outside the school gates this Clean Air Day by brushing up on their bike maintenance skills.

The children from Christ Church Upper Armley C of E Primary School were shown how to carry out a basic bike safety check, fix punctures, and adjust brakes and gears, thanks to staff from West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s CityConnect programme. Pupils were free to play all afternoon on Christ Church Road, which was closed to vehicles between 1pm and 4pm as part of 11 school street closures organised by Leeds City Council across the city on Clean Air Day (June 20).
