Speedwatch scheme to be launched in Northiam

A GROUP of local volunteers are being formed to monitor traffic speeds through the village of Northiam.

Organiser Nick Searle said: “There will be training sessions from the police in the use of speed measuring equipment for signed up Speedwatch members.”

The scheme has worked well in other areas such as Winchelsea and Udimore.

Information is passed to police and repeat offenders can receive a written warning from police.
