PC Harriet Copley said: ‘We have identified that the area is suitable for a speedwatch campaign - but we need volunteers to help us enforce this.

‘Community speedwatch is a scheme that allows the public to volunteer alongside police to monitor the speed of traffic passing through their area.

‘We are also looking for volunteers to cover areas all around Gosport.’
