Couple in fresh plea for action on Cox's Hill after latest crash at home
12:00pm Monday 23rd June 2014 in News
A SPEED and road condition survey is needed for a dangerous hill blighted by speeding, it has been claimed.
Gill and Gerry Gilbert of Constable Close in Lawford and Patrick Moore of Cotman Avenue called on Lawford Parish Council this week to take action.
Just last month Mr and Mrs Gilbert were stunned when a car crashed through their garden fence in what is the seventh incident of its type at their home.
Speaking at Monday's council meeting Gill said: "You must feel sorry for us when anther vehicle crashes through out garden."
Lawford Parish Council chairman Alan Coley said while the council has no authority over roads they would try to push the is issue.
"We have full sympathy with your position and we have written on your behalf and we will write again," he said.
