A campaign for speed cameras to be installed on a Nottinghamshire road, Cuckney Hill, has been hailed as a success.
Following the death of 24 year old Luke Winter earlier this year - the sixth person to be killed on road since 2006 - an appeal was launched by local newspaper The Mansfield and Ashfield Chad.
Tragically, Luke’s pregnant partner also lost her father in a crash yards from where her boyfriend died just 3 years earlier.
1,500 people signed a petition calling for speed cameras and, as a result of Nottinghamshire County Council's investigation, it is thought that with political approval the cameras could be in place by the end of next year.
Nottinghamshire County Council’s spokesperson commented: “In principle we are keen to address the speeds at this location and time over distance cameras are the preferred option."
