Volunteers are wanted to launch a Community Speed Watch (CSW) group to help tackle the danger caused by speeding motorists in Diss.

Police in Diss are working to set up the group. It would carry out speed checks in and around the town and surrounding parishes, recording the speeds of motorists who break the limit.

Those caught speeding are sent warning letters advising them they have been caught speeding and of the consequences.

Officers are seeking volunteers who would be trained to use a speed gun in an attempt to increase the number of roadside checks and raise the awareness of speeding issues in the area.

PCSO Aslaug Foreman said: “Speeding is regularly raised as a concern by the residents of Diss and the additional presence of Community Speed Watch volunteers at the roadside has a proven effect in other areas on getting drivers to slow down.”

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the Diss Safer Neighbourhood Team on the non-emergency number 101 or email sntdiss@norfolk.pnn.police.uk.
