WARNING letters have been sent to drivers caught speeding in Hopton and Belton as part of a policing priority.

Officers from the Southern Villages Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) have been carrying out speed checks in Hopton on Coast Road and Station Road and on Bracon Road and New Road in Belton.

Speeding and parking issues in both areas became a priority for the team in September and in response to local concerns officers have increased patrols and completed several speed checks which resulted in:

Three drivers being given verbal warnings

Seven drivers were sent warning letters

Two people receiving words of advice from officers

Members of the team have worked closely with Hopton Primary School in a bid to educate parents about responsible parking.

For the last three months officers have also been addressing concerns of anti-social behaviour in Burgh Castle, around the community centre and the Fishermans public house.

Increased high-visibility patrols have reduced the problem and the team will continue with its work.

At the recent priority setting meeting panel members agreed these priorities should continue for the next three months.
