MOTORISTS were caught travelling at more than double the 30mph limit along a busy Wisbech road near a primary school, according to speed survey results released by police.

The results show that 50 motorists were caught travelling along Leverington Road between 58 and 68mph - and nine motorists were clocked at between 69 and 79mph.

The entrance to Peckover Primary School is in Leverington Road.

A fifth of motorists were also caught exceeding the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines of 10 per cent plus 2mph over the limit.

The average speed along the road, however, was 30.5mph.

Inspector Clinton Hale, from the safety camera unit, said: "Sometimes this shows that perhaps speeding isn't as big a problem as people may have thought but in other areas it can identify a serious issue.

"Using this information we can ensure the appropriate action is taken to keep Cambridgeshire a safe county."

Police have started to release the speed survey results as part of the 'We Promised and Delivered' campaign. All results are available via the force website, www.cambs.police.uk.
