Police will be contacting 16 drivers after catching them speeding on East Lancashire's roads.

Officers have recently been working with community safety volunteers to look at road safety issues in problem areas across the Ribble Valley.

Following feedback from the public, they concentrated on three sites in Longridge that had been highlighted as a concern.

During the operation, on Dilworth Lane, police recorded eight speeding offences with drivers travelling over the 30mph limit, with the highest being 38mph.

Two drivers were also clocked for not wearing seatbelts.

On the second site, Preston Road (near to Water Meadows), officers recorded a further eight speeding offences over the 30mph limit, with the highest being 43mph.

Meanwhile, at the third site, Calfcote Lane, no offences were recorded over the 20mph limit.

A spokesperson for the police said: "The offending drivers will be hearing from us in due course.

"A thank you to the volunteers who work with us, who give their free time as they are passionate about road safety in their community.

"We also appreciate the members of the public who approached us whilst on site and thanked us for looking at road safety as a priority.

"If there are any other locations that you have concerns about in the Ribble Valley, please visit the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership website link on https://orlo.uk/QwbFo and report it, as we can then respond in future to these requests for sites to concentrate on."
