New pedestrian crossing on Battersea Bridge after campaign following the death of jogger Jack Ryan

Following the death of 29 year old Jack Ryan after being struck by a car on Battersea Bridge, a campaign was launched to make the crossing safer.

Journalist Rob McGibbon witnessed the incident in January this year and started a petition to have a pedestrian crossing added.

He gathered more than 26,000 signatures and caught TfL’s attention with  the new lights officially switched on this week.

Rob McGibbon spoke to Alicia Edwards about the campaign
