MSP for Aberdeenshire West, Dennis Robertson attended the Banchory River Festival on June 14, where he promoted child car seat clinics.

Mr Robertson spoke with many of the stall holders including the South Marr Community Safety Group Stall.

The MSP spoke with two Transport Safety Education Officers from Aberdeenshire Council and retained Fire Fighter Stewart Murdoch.

Mr Robertson said: “It was alarming but not surprising to learn that 80% of child car seats are fitted wrong. I understand that June and Lucy who are Transport Safety Education Officers, will be holding Child Car Seat Clinics throughout Aberdeenshire in coming months to educate people how to fit Child Car Seats.

“This is a valuable opportunity for local people to have their seats checked for free as this check could save a child’s life.”

Car Seat Clinics are taking place throughout Aberdeenshire this summer.
