Villagers in Lympstone concerned about speeding vehicles have been told to lobby the county council in a bid to make their voices heard.

Lympstone residents calling for village speed limits to be cut have been told to vote with their feet to score success.

The parish council this week urged residents concerned about speeding vehicles to use their vote at the ballot box to ensure councillors listen to their fears.

Members of the public speaking at the meeting believe a fatality will occur before their calls for a 20mph speed limit are taken seriously.

Many residents fear for the safety of the 180 children attending Lympstone Primary School who, they claim, dice with death during their walk to and from school because vehicles often mounted pavements.

Lympstone Parish Council said it had ‘pushed hard’ to force the county council to listen to the village and change the speed limit.
