No solution
We are told long-term solutions to Newark’s traffic problems could cost £200m (Ten-year, £200m Plan To End Gridlock Misery, Advertiser, July 16).

No it won’t, because there isn’t a long-term solution.

Dualling the A1 was once seen as a marvellous step forward — now it’s not enough and three-lane stretches are considered essential.

The same story can be repeated everywhere in the UK.

Happy to help
Some believe community spirit has all but vanished from modern society, with fewer people being prepared to look out for their neighbours. An incident in Farndon at the weekend went some way to disproving that theory.

When ten-year-old Harley Smith, who has autism and epilepsy, slipped out of the family home a frantic search was launched.

Harley’s mum, Mrs Lisa Smith, admitted they were terrified he could have made his way to the A46 or the River Trent. They feared the worst could have happened.

Neighbours quickly realised something was amiss and dropped everything to go out on foot, on bikes and in cars looking for him.
