THE community speedwatch team in Hursley found that nearly two thirds of drivers were speeding through the village.

The volunteers, backed by police, recorded the speeds of motorists for 90 minutes last Friday (March 2).

Nearly 20 drivers were clocked entering the village at between 40 and 50mph, and one was going 72mph, the volunteers said.

They added that 64.8 per cent of drivers flouted the 30mph limit.

Details of the worst offenders are likely to be given to police and some drivers may receive warning letters.

Further community speedwatch checks in Hursley are expected.
