Nine-year-old Charlotte Walker remembered with flowers and Chinese lanterns

FLOWERS were laid at the side of the Sixteen Foot drain, and Chinese lanterns were set off to mark Angel Day - the fourth anniversary of the accident in which nine year old Charlotte Walker lost her life, after the car she was travelling in left the road, and car plunged into the water near Bedlam Bridge.

Safety campaigner Graham Chappell, who has led the Fenland Road Safety Campaign (Charlotte’s Way), put flowers by the waterway before he went into hospital for a knee operation.

The campaign has offered to pay half of the proposed �11,800 Bedlam Bridge Safety Barrier Scheme, and is currently awaiting the outcome of the joint funding bid recently submitted to Cambridgeshire County Council. The campaign hopes to receive a decision next month.
