I READ with interest Cllr John Shuttleworth’s letter headlined “Stay at home” (HAS, May 19).

I entirely agree with his statement that the residents of Weardale have had enough of speeding motor cycles.

I have complained to the police through Stanhope Parish Council as the A689 splits my farmland and we are continuously playing Russian roulette.

Something has to be done to curb this irresponsible behaviour.
