An action group has been set up to campaign against HGVs and speeding drivers along Vancouver Avenue, Goodwins Road, Tennyson Road and Tennyson Avenue.

Resident Simon Vallance said: 'We have tried to get the county council, local council and police involved and feel we have hit a brick wall so we decided to get every resident along these roads who felt it was a problem to sign a petition.

'We have 95pc of residents signatures demonstrating that a whole community is unhappy and frustrated by the HGVs and the damage that's being done to our community.' Mr Vallance said the group would consider more direct action such as blocking the road if the petition failed.
