A CONCERNED mum has branded a roundabout dangerous after a car clipped her and her son.

Zacha Hennessey and six-year-old Ryan have now started a petition to improve the state of WGC's Ganetts roundabout.

With more than 250 signatures the pair from Little Ganett are asking for the bushes to be removed and unnecessary signage to be taken down.

Zacha, 35, said: "I was in the middle island with Ryan and we couldn't see the car coming.

"It clipped me but I managed to push my son back in time.

"It was really scary."

Zacha, who works at Ludwick Family Centre as a youth worker, says she uses the roundabout daily for work and to take Ryan to school at Swallow Dell.

"Since starting the petition I have spoken to lots of people, I didn't realise how much other people were concerned by the roundabout."

She added that Ryan had spoken to his school friends about the danger and many parents had signed up, as well as elderly residents.

The petition asks Welwyn Hatfield Council to make the roundabout safe for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

A spokeswoman from Hertfordshire County Council, which is responsible for the roundabout, said: "If we receive a petition we would investigate the request and look into the need and feasibility of carrying out the request.

"Our findings would be presented to the joint member panel which would make the final decision.
