A police crackdown on speeding in Doncaster has been hailed a success.

Speed checks carried out by police officers and PCSOs in Rossington have led to a reduction in offences, according to South Yorkshire Police.

On Littleworth lane, a busy road with a 30mph speed limit, 100 cars were checked and 16 speeding offences were logged during a recent operation.

Doncaster neighbourhood Inspector Mark Payling, who has been involved in the work done to catch speeding drivers, said: “The work done so far marks the beginning of further speed operations that will be put in place to target drivers and reduce the number of deaths caused.”
