A Whaley Bridge resident is calling for more parents to walk their children to school, after describing traffic congestion in the town as a “ticking time bomb”.

Chris Wilman said that unless something was done about the gridlock in the town centre at rush hour, casualties awaiting emergency services could die waiting for help to arrive.

The 54-year-old said last Monday afternoon, she witnessed the North West Air Ambulance land in a field near New Horwich Road, beating the land ambulance to an incident.
