A COUNCILLOR is demanding that safety barriers be replaced after they were damaged in a collision.
Cllr Fiona Hill, chairman of North Herts District Council's Royston area committee, said the railings near to Roman Way and Roysia schools were damaged two weeks ago.
"We need to ensure that when we have these kind of incidents that repairs are carried out as a matter of urgency."
