Police have shut Hereson Road, both ways between St Lukes Avenue and Victoria Road – going into Boundary Road at the traffic lights – in Ramsgate following the incident.
There’s something that looks very much like a CCTV camera just on the corner by the hairdressers.I wonder if it is working?
Sympathies to the family and all involved
That set of traffic lights has always been one of the most frightening junctions to cross at I’ve used anywhere. It could do with some refuges or islands added on Boundary Road at the very least.
There is 20 meters up boundary road.
RIP Alex Taylor.
Sorry for your loss Maria
Sorry to all the family / friends for the sad loss x
Someone will get killed on Newington Road as cars speed along here they doing at least 50 mph if not more. I had a few misses at the crossing . Cars are just going to fast to stop and until a few get run over nothing will be done .Yet we have a speed camera at the traffic lights at the viaduct , St Lukes / Margate road .
This is so tragic. Condolences and sympathy to the family and friends.
