Speedwatch launched for Stogursey, Shurton and Burton
POLICE have responded to concerns about traffic heading to Hinkley C - if and when it goes ahead - by helping people from nearby villages set up a community speed watch scheme.
Villagers in Stogursey, Shurton and Burton have said speeding in the area is a concern.
They have now been given speed checking equipment to slow motorists down, and will be supported in using it at peak times by police officers and staff.
St Steve Crago, from the Hinkley policing team, said: “Residents are becoming increasingly concerned about the amount of traffic expected at the Hinkley C development, should planning go ahead.
“This is an excellent example of empowering local residents to police their own communities.”
