POLICE in Herefordshire are trying to crack down on speeding on a main road in a rural village.

West Mercia Police shared a picture of the Hereford safer neighbourhood team with a speed gun in St Weonards, near Ross-on-Wye.


The officers were monitoring drivers on the A466, the road through the village from the A49 at Kingsthorne to Monmouth.

While police said no one was caught flouting the 40mph limit, officers said they tried to tackle concerns when possible.


They said they work closely with local parish councils, with concerns previously raised in St Weonards.

In 2019, parish council minutes showed a resident of the nearby Sandyway had highlighted complaints from fellow villagers.

The council agreed to contact the council and police to try and tackle the issue.
