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.”
