Residents in Sevenoaks Road are calling for traffic calming in the area before there is a fatality.

Iain Alexander has had four vehicles written off in as many years and he and his wife Sarah say something needs to be done about the speed for children’s safety.

They are calling on speed humps, a pelican crossing or some form of traffic calming in the area.

Mike Fairclough, headteacher of West Rise Junior School, said the road was notorious for speeding drivers and a 20mph speed limit was needed at the very least.
