Melbury And Fontmell Councillor Wants Speedwatch Extended

Over three hundred drivers have been issued with letters warning about speeding on Dorset’s roads this week.

Dozens of speed watch volunteers took part in a Dorset-wide day of action on Tuesday, in partnership with Dorset Police. 58% of speeding drivers were local.
