BP CHEMICALS LTD
at Saltend hasgiven advance notice of its intention totest its
toxic alarm system
on
TUESDAY20th SEPTEMBER.
The alarm sounds like an old World War II air raidsiren, and is normally tested every Wednesday.But the exercise on 20th September is a major test of what the Saltendworkforce would do in a real toxic gas release and will involve the alarmsounding for a longer period.BP cannot give a precise time for the test because they not want their workforce to be
too

DANGEROUS TRAFFIC THROUGH PRESTON?MONSTER WHEELS get abit too close for comfort attimes when you stand onthe crossroads in Preston!
 This photo typifies the wheelsconfronting pedestrians as you walkalong the narrow pathways of streetsat Preston crossroads.It can be quite overwhelming – if notterrifying! – to be as close to suchmonster wheels that you can touchthem!Preston resident John Hockless......thinks that the current situation with anestablished HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle)route going right through the village fromEast to West, means that serious accidentsare inevitable!John said:
“People of Preston must bemade aware of the risks before someoneis dragged under the wheels of one of these monsters.”
The decision to establish the HGV route through the village was made in the year 2000following a consultation process which involved a major meeting being held in the village.However, the attendees at that meeting did not have eleven years experience of beingsubject to major traffic flowing through the centre. So perhaps it is time to review thatdecision and look at new options for making Preston roads feel safer!?The East Riding Council has provided the above data about the overall numbers of crashesin the village which shows only 5 serious accidents in five years – but does this reveal thefull story or redress the fears amongst local people? We need to hear from residents in thevillage about their experiences and concerns about traffic in the village.Tell us your stories athu12@gmx.com
