Call to ban SUVs from city centres after Selena Lau, 8, killed in school crash horror

Calls have been made for SUVs to be banned from built-up areas after a girl was killed in a crash outside her primary school. Eight-year-old Selena Lau was killed during a tea party at The Study Preparatory School in Wimbledon.

With three quarters of new SUV sales going to owners who live in urban homes, there are calls for curbs on their use. The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) called Thursday’s crash a “terrible and avoidable tragedy” and wants a ban on SUVs in towns and cities in a bid to cut cyclist and pedestrian fatalities.
