The wrong arm of the law

Campaigners calling for speed restrictions through Belan appear to have taken matters into their own hands.

On Thursday, mannequins of police officers appeared on the two entry points to the stretch of road where calls have been made to introduce a 50mph speed limit, around a mile from Welshpool on the Newtown road.

And it seems to have worked! Whilst MyWelshpool was there, we noticed a considerable difference to the speed of traffic passing through.

Even MP Glyn Davies praised their arrival by saying last night that they were “very realistic”. He joked: “Was it some sort of fancy dress joke, a couple of escapees from Max Mosley’s underground fun room or a new anti-speeding strategy by Dyfed Powys Police? Effective too. Everyone slowed down!”

But there is mystery over who is responsible. Welshpool Town Council has backed residents’ calls for speed restrictions but last night Town Clerk, Robert Robinson, simply said “no comment”.
