THE number of people killed or seriously injured on Island roads has leapt by more than 20 per cent.
There were 27 serious casualties during July, August and September, compared with 22 the previous year — an increase of 22 per cent.
It is now anticipated there will be more than 100 serious casualties by the end of this year, against a target of 80.
A report to the Isle of Wight Council says road safety campaigns in the media and schools are being held as part of efforts to reduce accidents.
