Drivers who ignore access-only signs in an area of North Walsham are being warned they could face a £30 fine.

Officers from the local safer neighbourhood team will be conducting regular high-visibility patrols along Station Road following several complaints that drivers are using the road as a short-cut.

Police have received several complaints about motorists using the section of road between Millfield Road and Norwich Road, near the Victory Swim and Fitness Centre, flouting the access only signs.

Drivers, other than local buses, should only use this section of road to access the leisure centre or local houses but several use the route as a cut-through.

The road are clearly sign-posted as access-only and officers will be carrying out regular enforcement patrols and handing out £30 fixed penalty notices to anyone seen contravening these signs.
