EXMOUTH police arrested a disqualified driver during a recent crackdown on speeding.

The police and officers from the East and Mid-Devon Partners and Communities Together (PACT) team set up a speed sting along Dinan Way following concerns raised by the Brixington Improvement Group (BIG).

Over a two-day period, the police gave out 16 verbal warnings, handed out five speeding tickets and arrested one person for driving while disqualified.

PCSO Ball said: "On speaking to those who had been stopped for speeding it became apparent that many people believed that Dinan Way had a speed limit of 40mph, this is not the case.

"Dinan Way is a built up area with street lamps at regular intervals and therefore the speed limit is 30mph.

"The police are looking to work in conjunction with the council to improve the signage in the area so that there is no confusion in the future.
