Pupils' school gate traffic survey
HARDY primary pupils braved the rain to carry out a traffic survey outside the school gates.
Lipson Vale Primary School has been monitoring the number of vehicles using Bernice Terrace for around a decade.
Youngsters take traffic-counts three times a year to see if plans to drive down unnecessary car journeys are working.
Some of the school's current crop of youngsters armed themselves with an umbrella to take a survey of vehicles.

"Despite the fact it was raining, the count was surprisingly low," said Lipson Vale's Pam Redgwell.
"Normally it's pandemonium out there."
But she added: "We do know from our surveys that more of our pupils walk to school nowadays, or their parents park further away from the entrance."
Police speed guns have been used by children during previous traffic counts at the primary.
