Pupils at a Louth primary school have seen their attempts to improve nearby road safety damaged for a second time.

Kidgate Primary Academy pupils, so concerned about problem parking in Cinder Lane, designed and made road safety signs which were damaged by vandals in November.

The originals were then reprinted onto a banner but at the weekend the banner was stolen by cruel thieves, possibly to use as a snow sledge.

The banner was subsequently found damaged on Tuesday afternoon at Hubbard’s Hills in Louth.

Fears have been raised that pupils’ safety could be put at risk if problem parking makes a return.

School governor Tim Greenfield said: “It is so annoying that someone or a group of people has again wrecked the good work and intentions of young children by stealing this banner.

“Whoever took it was prepared as it looks as though it was cut down.

“The sad thing is the banner was really helping keep the area outside the school safer, deterring people from parking or stopping there to drop or pick children off.”

But Mr Greenfield said the school would not be deterred.

“We will find another way of putting a new banner or posters up in the same area,” he added.
