Most drivers are complying with the 30 mph speed limit near the Primary School at the west end of the village however, one driver was detected at 62 mph and will be the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal.

Safety Camera Unit Manager Andy Jones said: “How anyone thinks that travelling over twice the speed limit is acceptable beggars belief.

“Compound this with the proximity to the Primary School and this could so easily have resulted in tragedy.

“Police will be continuing our checks and any driver found exceeding the speed limits will be dealt with robustly.”
