“SCHOOLboy Toby Phillips has persuaded a council to cut the speed limit in his road.

He wrote to Portsmouth City Council after realising his street – Centurion Gate, in Eastney – was one of only a handful not to have a 20mph speed limit.

In his letter, Toby told council leader Gerald Vernon-Jackson of the dangers he faced when playing outside on his scooter and warned that he felt unsafe in the 30mph zone.

And much to the youngster’s delight, the council decided to enforce a 20mph limit on the road at a transport committee meeting.”
