A NEW mini island has been added to an accident black spot in Redditch.

A mini island has been installed at the junction of Blackstitch Lane and Middle Piece Drive in Webheath.

The aim is to make the junction better and safer for residents as well as road users.

Councillor Brandon Clayton said that there has been a issue with the junction in Webheath for a long time.

"Worcestershire county and Redditch Borough councillors and officers have been working together to hopefully come up with a solution to this," he said.

The cllr did admit not everyone was a fan of the new addition.

"There are a few issues at the moment but when people get used to the changes it will be better for everyone in the long-term," he said.
