A local mum has told the Fraserburgh Herald that, while taking her children to school, traffic congestion at South Park Primary School nearly saw a youngster run over.

The mother, who did not wish to share her name, told the Herald: “I was walking along the pavement on Philorth Avenue towards South Park School with my son and daughter.

“My daughter heard the bell ringing and ran ahead towards the gate. It was at the same moment that a driver coming towards us could not pass a car going the opposite direction, so decided that instead of waiting he would immediately mount the pavement and drive on the pavement towards us, obviously not noticing that a 6-year-old child was on the pavement!
