ALTHOUGH the coronavirus has been dreadful, there has been one silver lining - cars and motorbikes being banned from Birkenhead Park.

Couldn't this be rolled out permanently (apart from emergency vehicles, disabled transport and delivery vans)?

It has been so much safer and healthier since the ban - no speeding cars (very few drivers adhere to the 10mph speed limit) and no drivers sitting with their engines idling, causing unnecessary pollution.

So, our children are less likely to be run over and they are not breathing car fumes.

Please Wirral Council - keep us safe and let us breathe fresh air.
