Frithelstock tackles speeding motorists

RESIDENTS at Frithelstockstone near Torrington have been carrying out the first Community Speedwatch through their village.

The initiative follows concerns raised by local people about the speed of vehicles through the village and 10 of them have been trained to operate the speed watch there.

Police said the campaign complements current enforcement and works towards the goal of reducing the amount of people killed or seriously injured on the roads.

Offending drivers are issued with a fixed penalty ticket.
