A NEW fictional teddy bear character has been created to make children in North Lanarkshire think about the dangers of speeding.

Speeding Ted is the latest road safety resource for primary schools.

The pack was developed by leading Scottish educational consultant Lynda Keith, on behalf of the Strathclyde Safety Camera Partnership in association with the West of Scotland Road Safety Forum.

Over 50 teachers from primaries and special schools in North Lanarkshire attended an in-service training morning at Airdrie Football Stadium where they received their copies of the new resource.
