Dashcam footage shows car doing in excess of the speed limit in Witchford


Concerns over speeding vehicles in Witchford could be raised with council bosses if problems persist, a police sergeant has warned.

It comes as residents were pressing for speed restriction measures last month, as dashcam footage showed a car doing in excess of the 30mph limit while overtaking another on Main Street.

East Cambridgeshire Police Sergeant Mark Raybell said that he had “not been made aware of any specific issues” since the incident, but was keen to work with the local Speed Watch group.

He explained: “Nothing major has been flagged up to us or the parish council, but we are always open to hearing about problems in the area.

“It would be good to get involved more with the Speed Watch group and if we find that there is a regular problem with speeding then we will take enforcement action if required.

“The next step would be to get something evidence based to the county council and then they could decide if any measures such as speed cameras were needed.”

Concerns over speeding, inconsiderate parking and lack of enforcement by traffic officers have been ongoing issues in the East Cambridgeshire village in recent years.
