Police and members of the public joined forces on Thursday (28) to tackle the problem of speeding drivers on a busy road in Ravenshead.

Teams of police and volunteers took part in the operation on Longdale Lane in the village – a hotspot for speeding motorists.

Armed with speed guns, the volunteers alerted police to speeding vehicles, with those going over the limit being stopped and challenged by officers.

The joint operation is being viewed as a success, with police saying the event had a positive impact.

A spokesman said: “This being a joint agency working exercise proved very successful with just a few motorists receiving a verbal warning and a letter highlighting their speed.

“If you’re not aware this road is a thirty speed limit.”

They added: “We continue to work together to making Ravenshead a safer place for everyone.”
