A petition has been launched calling for traffic lights to be installed on Forest Road, after a woman died and many more were hurt in a crash yesterday (Sunday), as Isle of Wight Radio reported.

The petition is calling for the Isle Of Wight Council to meet urgently to consider changes on the stretch of road.

The crossroads, at the junction with Betty Haunt Lane and Whitehouse Road, has previously been the scene of a number of crashes.

In July 2018, a motorcyclist was taken to hospital after an incident there.

Two cars collided at the junction in April 2018 and also in November 2016
