PUPILS from a village school joined thousands of other children across the UK aiming to break the world record for the largest walking bus.

Hoping to raise awareness for road safety charity, Brake, St John's students, in Lemsford village, did a 500 metre route from the school gates last week.

Michelle Kirby, the vice chair of the school's PTA, started Slow Down For Tommy, in Borehamwood (in connection with Brake) last year after her 10-year-old nephew, Tommy Kenny, was killed, in a 30mph zone road accident.

The Great North Road woman said: "It was a great event, hopefully it will encourage local authorities to reduce the 30mph zones down to 20mph.
