Ten motorists caught speeding by Nottinghamshire Police on Main Street, Kirton, near Ollerton, during 90-minute period

Inspector Heather Sutton has asked motorists to slow down after ten drivers were caught speeding in a 90-minute period.

After complaints to Nottinghamshire Police from residents, officers from Ollerton visited Main Street, Kirton — a suggested speeding hotspot.

Having spent an hour and a half on Main Street using a speed detection device, ten motorists were caught driving in excess of the 30mph speed limit, with a top speed of 47mph being recorded on one vehicle.

Three motorists were given advice while seven were issued with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR) which is then dealt with by either a driver education course, a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) or summon to court.

Inspector Heather Sutton said: "Speeding is a top priority, not only for the police but for residents that live in our villages who witness speeding vehicles on a daily basis.

"This will not be tolerated and we intend to increase the number of officers out in our area with not only the hand-held device, but also the traffic enforcement vans.

"We recently trained more officers to use the device and have the support of Op Reacher teams across the county.

"The message is simple, please slow down."
