It’s been a long time coming, but local hero Andy Lawrence has triumphed.
Regular readers will remember that Mr Lawrence risked life and limb to highlight the need for a barrier across Mortimer Street to make it safe for shoppers. That was back in September 2012.
Six months later, it looks like our beloved Council has finally got its act together, and we’ll be getting the barrier. In a sensible world, of course, it would be open in the early morning – for deliveries to the shops – and shut the rest of the time.
We’ll have to wait and see how sensible our little bit of the world (well, our Council) is in practice.
