COLATON Raleigh's request for a zebra crossing in the village is unlikely to be successful because of the low level of traffic or pedestrians.

Parish council chairman Christopher Pound recently contacted highway officials to raise the issue of road safety in the village.

He enquired about a zebra crossing but was told the requirement was for 100 pedestrian movements an hour and 1000 vehicle movements an hour.

A Devon and Cornwall police spokesperson said: "It is unlikely the village can achieve this target so the possibility of being successful is minimal."

The police said neighbourhood beat manager PC David Lea was preparing to write to highways to ask if the village's road markings could be refreshed.
