DRIVERS have been urged to take extra care and watch their speed around a school in Chalford.

Corinne Martin, headteacher of Chalford Hill Primary School, has expressed concerns to police about how some residents have been driving in the area recently.

PC Emma Beard, of Gloucestershire police, said: "It goes without saying that care and attention is needed at all times around schools but it is even more important that drivers exercise caution at the start and end time of school as there will be an increased number of parents and children."
