WIGAN youngsters are gearing up to stay safe on the roads as the dark nights draw in.

Pupils from St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary have took part in a ‘Be Safe Be Seen’ campaign run by the road safety charity, Brake, and Co-operative Funeral Care in Standish.

It is aimed to encourage schools to make children more aware about road safety during winter.

The little ones received visibility reflective badges to ensure they are seen in the dark.

Joy Mcallister, from Co-operative Funeral Care, said: “We are helping to raise awareness of the importance of being visible on the road during the dark nights. With the clocks about to go back, darker mornings and evenings mean that children need to take care on their journeys to and from school.”

Mrs Banks, teacher at St Bernadette’s, said: “We are delighted to be supporting this initiative which emphasises the importance of road safety to our pupils.”
