A YOUNG girl from Ellesmere Port who was involved in a road traffic collision in the week before Christmas has been presented with a gift by representatives of the emergency services.
On Wednesday, December 19, seven- year-old Neve Lockett was in collision with a car on Wolverham Road.
Police and ambulance services attended the scene and fortunately Neve only sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident.
An officer from Ellesmere Port Neighbourhood Policing unit was determined to ensure Neve’s experience with the emergency services was a positive one and approached The Entertainer shop at Cheshire Oaks, which kindly agreed to donate a toy for the youngster.
On January 6, PC Neil Caitens and members of the ambulance service met Neve to present her with the gift.
Inspector Brian Green, of Ellesmere Port Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: “Neve was very lucky not to have been seriously injured as a result of the collision and we hope she has taken away a positive impression of the emergency services.”
Plans are now being made for Neve to be an advocate of a future road safety campaign.
