    Speed cameras are being demanded by people in a village in Cheshire as they claim it's a hotspot for high speeds and crashes.

    The A530 in Bradfield Green

    The A530 drops from 50mph to 30mph as it goes through Bradfield Green, near Crewe.

    But villagers have told BBC Radio Stoke of cars flouting the limit and repeatedly coming off the road in recent months.

    Last month, Cheshire Police caught a driver going at 94mph in the 30 zone.

    The force said it carries out speed checks on local roads every week and use the data to identify hot spots, which it uses with Cheshire East Council and the fire service to find long-term solutions.
