After months of campaigning, pupils and parents at a Whitechapel Primary School in Cleckheaton now have a lollipop lady.

Whitchapel Church of England Primary School in Cleckheaton welcomed Kay Quantrill who will help the children cross the road safely.

Headteacher Michelle Bouabida said: “The school and parents have been lobbying for a safe crossing since we moved here last September and we are pleased the council have recognised the need for a patrol here.”
