I have been seeing far too many dead hedgehogs on Empingham Road on the stretch between The Brooks and Vicars Close. ( Probably 6-8 between spring and now- two more killed last night (8th November 2021). It is clearly a 'highway' for these endangered mammals and too many are being killed. Any chance of one of the brand new special hedghog signs (launched by Highways Agency) being put up along this stretch somewhere?
