‘Lollipop’ men and women helped adults across the road in Manchester city centre during half term week.
The traditional school crossing patrols were trying to raise awareness of road safety in one of the busiest parts of the city. Pedestrians and bus passengers were also given lollipops with messages reminding them to ‘stop, look and listen’.
Michael Renshaw, from Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive, said: "We want to remind people to stick to the right crossings - their safety is much more important than saving a couple of seconds by crossing elsewhere or running for the bus. I hope this campaign will encourage people to pay more attention to their surroundings when they're crossing the road and stay safe."
