Police from the Upper Valley neighbourhood policing team have been dealing with speeding drivers and bad parkers after concerns from residents.

The team were in Heptonstall yesterday on patrol.

“Local people told us that these issues were a concern to them and so we took action,” said Sergeant Louise Holbrook.

“Officers spoke to people in what is quite a small community and discussed their speed and how and where they park to hopefully stop the problem that way.

“The officers made themselves known and lots of people will have seen them out on patrol.”
