NEWTON Aycliffe police officers carried out Community Speedwatch operations in Middridge Village, Aycliffe Village, Burnhill Way, and Williamson Way as part of their Road Safety Week.

These were done in response to public concerns about traffic speeds in those areas.

A total of 921 vehicle passed through these checks and 88 were found to be over the specified speed limit for that area.

Volunteers who want to get involved in Speedwatch can contact the neighbourhood team at Durham police on 101, or via Facebook.
