priority and it was clear the number of HGV`s using the
village as a short cut to the A46 was a major concern.
The beat team recently attended a meeting at the village
hall to try and set a plan of action involving interested
parties such as the Parish Council and Highways
Department and, as this is likely to be a long term plan,
this will continue as a beat priority.
