Prizes for road safety poster competition winners

Pupils from Sir John Colfox School in Bridport have created posters illustrating all elements of road safety.

Dorset Police and Dorset Road Safe ran a joint poster competition for pupils of Sir John Colfox School in Bridport. They asked students from years 7 to 13 to create a poster delivering a road safety message.

The competition was judged by local partners and the winners were announced at the school on Friday 9 December 2011. Chief Superintendent Colin Searle attended to present the winners with their prizes.
