Following two separate incidents of youngsters being involved in collisions with cars, drivers are urged to be more aware of children playing on or near roads.

Elaine Marshall, Central Scotland Police road safety officer, said: “While the children only received minor injuries, the drivers were left shaken because the consequences could have been far more serious.

“Drivers should be mindful there are more children and young people out and about during the school holidays and they should always be driving at the appropriate speed.

“We are now half-way through the school holidays and we urge parents and carers to remind their children of safe places to play - parks, playgrounds and gardens, not roads and pavements.”
