ROAD safety was top of the agenda for Darlington youngsters yesterday.

Children at Cockerton Primary School celebrated the end of Walk to School Week with a visit from the borough council's safety mascot, Pedestrian Pete.

They were among hundreds of pupils in the town to take part in the initiative, which encouraged them to walk or ride bikes to school.

Teachers told children of the health benefits of walking to school, while also encouraging them to stay safe on the roads.
