ESSEX school heads are to meet county highways officials for talks on the future of the county’s lollipop ladies.

Rodney Bass, county councillor responsible for highways, has confirmed he is to meet schools whose pupils are protected by crossing patrols this this week.

Sack the lollipops and make parents responsible for their children crossing roads as they do all the rest of the time. What? Parental responsibility - what a novelty!

Typical rich Tory's comment. You drive your children to school in your 4x4, so you're all right Jack. Other families whose children walk to school don't matter to you.
Think again, jack222.

Why have Lollipop assistants where there are Zebra crossings and pelican crossings ? So they stand in the road and stop the traffic to let the children and parents cross on the way to school, then stand there with there sign saying children crossing and let the parents cross back ! Waste of money and resources
