Police are looking for volunteers to help catch speeding motorists in Gorleston.
The Gorleston Community Speedwatch which covers the area around Bells Road and Englands Lane needs three more members to complete it.
Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a locally driven initiative where active members of the community join together with the support of the police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.
Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.
Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by neighbourhood policing team (NPT) staff.

A spokesman on the Community Speedwatch website said: 'Speedwatch activity is not about interfering with neighbours' behaviour; it is a proactive solution to improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the community.'
