An accident that saw a pair of young sisters injured by a lorry has led to calls for a footbridge to be built on Sutton Road.

An online petition has been created by campaigner Nikki Gough after Charlee Tinker, 13, and Tiffany Tinker, seven, were hit by a heavy goods vehicle near Morrisons on Tuesday, March 25.

Charlee suffered concussion and spent two nights at King’s College Hospital in London while Tiffany escaped with minor cuts and bruises.

In the petition she states: “A safer way to cross Sutton Road in Maidstone via a footbridge is needed. 
“It saddens me to hear of another youngster being struck by a vehicle on Sutton Road in Maidstone.

“This is the third accident I have heard of since living in Shepway.”
