Hemyock Parish Council is seeking volunteers to run a speed survey system in the village using the latest technology 'speed guns'.

Most of the village is covered by a 20mph limit whilst other areas within the parish remain covered by the maximum 30mph limit.

But locals complain that "thoughtless" drivers continue to travel through the area at above the prescribed limits, bringing fear of accidents to concerned parents. Volunteers would receive training by Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and would work in pairs.

Parishioners who wish to volunteer should contact parish clerk Anne Kingston on (01823) 680918.
