Police carrying out speed checks

They were the latest of a number of speed check operation officers have carried out this week.

As part of national speed awareness week, the neighbourhood policing team had been out with the speed guns in various places highlighted by the public. Earlier in the week they carried out checks at Grampion Way in Thorne. But a spokesman said that one was found to be speeding on that occasion.
