A Sidcup schoolgirl has won a competition to design a road safety banner.

The annual competition is run by promotional products, badges and school uniform supplier Recognition Express Bromley and Dartford and national road safety charity Brake.

Hundreds of entries were received nationally and the eye-catching design by eight-year-old Carla Breazu from Days Lane Primary School was one of just 12 winners selected across the country.
