NEWS ROUNDUP: E-scooter concerns & Caerphilly is the first council to sign the pledge to be seen

Newport councillors concerned over the use of e-scooters and Caerphilly is the first council in the UK to sign the Pledge to be Seen.
But first…
Coronavirus cases in Wales do seem to be declining steadily. Should this continue, most of the remaining restrictions are expected to be lifted on Saturday. We'll receive word on this from Mark Drakerford on Friday.
Weekly deaths from coronavirus across Wales and England have hit their highest levels in three months.
Deaths involving coronavirus in Wales increased to 16 in the week to 23 July compared with four the week before.
E-scooter woes
Newport residents can have their say on restrictions on e-scooters in the city centre.
In a meeting, St Julians councillor Phil Hourahine said rules on e-scooters in pedestrian areas should be reviewed and put to the public, with Conservative councillor Charles Ferris saying “We've got to the point where we can drive 20mph on the road in a car, but 30mph on an e-scooter.”
Pledge to be Seen
Caerphilly County Borough Council has become the first local authority in the UK to sign the Pledge to be Seen Campaign, focusing on supporting those with visible differences.
The people behind the movement  said they were delighted to see the council get on board.
The council follows the lead of the Welsh Government, which was the first body in the UK to sign the Pledge To Be Seen commitment earlier this year.

Catrin Pugh, Changing Faces ambassador and Welsh Woman of the Year 2019, is delighted that the council has joined the campaign.

Ms Pugh said: “A whole section of people will feel seen and represented. It is not a huge ask to be inclusive. Hopefully Caerphilly will show other councils how easy it is.”
