Fareham MP Suella Fernandes and Titchfield SpeedWatch

Armed with kit to monitor traffic speed, the Titchfield SpeedWatch caught 40 drivers speeding out of 189 in just an hour.

The group was joined last month by Suella Fernandes, Fareham MP, in St Margaret’s Lane, Titchfield.

The 40 speeding vehicles were doing more than 35mph in a 30mph residential area.
