RESIDENTS in Moorgreen launched a speedwatch scheme with police and the local MP last weekend.

Members of Moorgreen Residents Association launched the scheme to stop drivers speeding along Beauvale.

Volunteers have been trained how to use the handheld speedguns, which will clock drivers flouting speed limits.

Their details will be passed to cops for further action.

Moorgreen Residents Association said speeding along Beauvale had been a problem for more than 30 years.
