Video: Parents create pop-up zebra crossing

Horrified at the ludicrous alleged cost of a council-installed zebra crossing, some parents have resorted to a DIY version.

The Highways Agency says that the cost of a zebra crossing is £114,000. Presumably that is £14,000 for the crossing and £100,000 for the administrators, management consultants, risk assessors, PR agencies and the other 100 middlemen without which nothing can be done in modern Britain.
