Speed checks carried out by officers from Wakefield Central Neighbourhood Police Team yesterday had some alarming results.

In just over two hours, they issued six tickets to drivers doing 60mph or more on the A650 Bradford Road out of Wakefield, which is a 40mph zone.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: “Speed limits are there to save lives and prevent accidents. Any pedestrian hit by any of these vehicles would certainly have sustained serious or fatal injuries.”
