Take more care when out running

I WOULD like to take this opportunity to address the lady who on Friday, February 17, was out for a run on Northumbrian Road, Cramlington, just past the Crowhall roundabout and the nearby playing fields and heading towards the Brockwell Centre.

Surely common sense should tell them that running on the road with their back to the traffic and their awareness reduced by listening to what is coming through earphones is putting their life at risk as they cannot see or hear what is happening behind them.

I wanted to stop and point this out to this runner but was unsure of what reaction I would get.

Please don’t do it again. Please don’t put your life at risk.
