I'm surprised the News Shopper didn't attempt to blame this unfortunately incident as well on the new shared space layout at the Alboin Road/Broadway junction in Bexleyheath.

Hard to see from the photo, but a lot of accidents could be avoided if people walked a bit further and used pedestrian crossings.
