Fast drivers are warned

RESIDENTS fed up of motorists speeding through Hathersage spent an hour monitoring speeds and clocked 15 drivers breaking the speed limit.

The Community Speed Watch volunteers carried out their checks on the A6187 Sheffield Road, which has a 30mph limit.

The owners of the vehicles clocked speeding will now receive letters advising them of their speeds and urging them not to break the limit.

Community Speed Watch volunteers have been trained in using speed guns and carry out checks as a group or with police officers.

Email bakewell.neighbourhoods@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk to volunteer.
