NEIGHBOURHOOD POLICING TEAM UPDATE The Valleys Neighbourhood Policing Team have had complaints from local residents, about vehicles speeding along New Hey Road through Outlane. Officers from The Valleys NPT set up speed checks last week, using a speed gun, along New Hey Road. Motorists were stopped and advised as to their speed when entering the 30mph zone in Outlane. Speed checks will continue in this area in January. If you live in, or drive through, an area where vehicles speed, and which you feel would benefit from a police presence, then let us know and we can set up some speed checks.
