THE safety of hundreds of children was being put at risk - because there was no safety patrol.
Parents and teachers at Roman Way School and Roysia School were involved in a long battle for a crossing patrol after two children were hurt in accidents in Burns Road, Royston.

Meanwhile, a crossing patrol in Old North Road had been transferred to Burns Road - but that then left schoolchildren vulnerable at that crossing point.
- Tenders were being considered for the building of the £1.25 million first phase of King's House in Royston.
The scheme - which was seen as Royston's most ambitious project for the elderly - would eventually provide accommodation for more than 100 elderly people.
