DRIVERS are being warned to be safe on the roads as dark nights approach.

Hampshire County Council has issued a warning as the clocks went back by an hour yesterday, meaning youngsters will be walking home from school in the fading light.

Councillor Seán Woodward, executive member for economy, transport and environment, said: ‘It is harder for motorists to spot others on the road or pavement in the dark with many accidents happening because drivers do not see cyclists or pedestrians until it is too late.’
