Supermarket chain Tesco has confirmed speed bumps installed at its March store have now been removed following complaints they were damaging customer cars.

The traffic calming measure was installed at a pedestrian crossing at the Hostmoor Avenue store's car park – but many motorists complained they were too high for their vehicles to pass.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “We recently installed speed bumps as a traffic calming measure on a pedestrian crossing at our March store.

“These have now been removed as a precaution following complaints of damage to cars.”

Tesco also confirmed that while the speed bumps were of a standard design, claims for damaged vehicles are being investigated at the moment by its insurers.

The car park's speed bumps will be replaced at a later date with a lower design. It is understood this will happen at some point this spring.
