Residents are fighting back in a bid to stop speeding drivers using a main road in their village as a rat-run.

Homeowners in Staining have been left angered by drivers speeding – with some so annoyed they have now established a road watch team to catch motorists breaking the 20mph limit.

Staining Coun John Singleton said: “As Staining is a popular short cut to Poulton, Blackpool and other areas on the Fylde coast, we are trying hard to deter motorists from speeding.”

The issue has also been raised at Police and Communities Tigether (PACT) meetings for the area.

Roadwatch teams see volunteers work with the police to man speed guns to catch drivers going over the limit.

Drivers are then sent warning letters about their conduct, and can ultimately be prosecuted.
