MOTORISTS speeding near schools in Bradwell are to be targeted by police.

Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team will also take steps in educating parents and pupils in road safety.

It comes after parents and staff raised concerns about road safety around Hillside, Homefield and Woodlands schools at the team's recent priority setting meeting.

Sgt Simon Fisk said: “While it's accepted that the high volume of traffic at peak times can not be stopped completely, people who are found to be driving or parking in a manner that puts children in danger can expect to be on the receiving end of fixed penalty tickets or court appearances.”

Other priorities for the next two months include anti-social behaviour on Burgh Road and Kingfisher Close as well as criminal damage on Kingfisher Close.

During the meeting previous priorities were reviewed and it was felt police and sufficiently dealt with anti-social behaviour at Mill Lane playing field, the Rainbow supermarket and Beccles Road.

The next meeting will take place at John Anderson Court on December 9 at 7pm.
