The police are continuing to monitor vehicle speeds in Withycombe Raleigh after residents raised safety concerns

Exmouth police are planning further checks in Withycombe Raleigh following concerns from residents in Masey Road over car speeds.

Officers said complaints over excess speed in the area had ceased thanks to a series of moves to curb speeding drivers.

Withycombe Police Community Support Officer Ben Tithecott said he was keen to hear from anyone who believed speeding continued to be an issue.

Officers recently carried out a series of speed checks in the area and sent warning letters to those caught breaking the law.

Local taxi drivers were also contacted by the police in a bid to highlight local concerns. PCSO Tithecott can be contacted at Exmouth police station on the non-emergency number 101.
