Opticians in Tiverton have helped pupils stay safe at night by donating high visibility vests to Two Moores Primary School.

The town's Specsavers store gave the vests to children at the school to promote safety at night ahead of Road Safety Week, an initiative by the charity Brake.

Store manager Kerry Saunders said: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night as winter is fast approaching.

‘Since the clocks have changed and nights have got darker, we hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children to and from school.’

Brake is a national road safety charity which exists to prevent deaths and injuries which happen on roads on a daily basis, through campaigns and other funding. The charity also promotes safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies.
