A volunteer speed watch scheme in Colaton Raleigh is up and running after residents in the village raised concerns with police.

Residents had highlighted speeding fears in the village to neighbourhood officers.

The police have since set up volunteer community speed watches.

Volunteers have been going out regularly to record the speed of motorists going through the village, which lies between Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth.

Drivers caught speeding are sent letters initally and, if caught a second time, are visited by the local neighbourhood policing team and could be issued a penalty notice.
