A police force has revealed where the locations of its speed cameras will be today, as it looks to crack down on the number of speeding drivers on its roads. 

As part of Cleveland Police's speeding campaign, which intensifies at around Christmas time, they have revealed where their speed vans will be located today (December 6). 

The campaign, which also looks to catch drink and drug drivers across the festive period, revealed that speed cameras will be concentrating on Hartlepool on Wednesday. 

The police force revealed that enforcement vans will be stationed concentrating in and around Rossmere Way and Powlett Road.

Meanwhile, over in Durham, thousands of pounds was allocated to tackle speeding in Crook, Willington and Tow Law earlier this year.

Durham County Council’s 3 Towns Area Action Partnership (AAP) contributed £147,000 from its Towns and Villages Fund to address concerns around speeding back in August.

Following a community priority survey and targeted consultation carried out by the AAP, it was highlighted that speeding was a priority concern for residents.

In response to this the council has been carrying out targeted work, in partnership with Durham Constabulary, local members, and residents, to develop traffic management solutions.
