A new community speedwatch scheme is being launched in Brinsley this Sunday, March 30.

The scheme will tackle drivers speeding through the village and will be launched outside St James Church, Church Lane at 1pm.

Trained volunteers will clock speeding drivers and pass details onto police.

Speeding has been an issue in Brinsley for a long time with motorists travelling well above the 30mph limit on the A608 Church Lane and Cordy Lane and also Broad Lane.

The number of HGVs travelling on these roads compounds thi problem with many of them travelling well above the speed limit.
