A deaf schoolgirl has won a competition to design a 20mph road sign for Camden’s borough-wide speed limit.
The winning poster by 10-year-old Mya Lawrence, a pupil at Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children in King’s Cross, shows a lion roaring and the words “slow down”.
Her design, picked from more than 550 entries, will be displayed on lampposts around the borough.
Mya also won £300 worth of cycling shop vouchers.
The borough-wide 20mph speed limit was brought in by Camden Council in early December last year.
