POLICE say a driver will be appearing in court after being caught speeding through Cowling yesterday (Sunday) evening.

While carrying out speed enforcement on the A6068 through the village, which has a 30mph limit, a driver was recorded doing 67mph while overtaking over vehicles.

The North Yorkshire Police Traffic Bureau and Road Safety posted on social media: "One driver thought the speed limit (30mph) didn't apply to them and decided to overtake other vehicles at 67mph! This driver will be invited to Court. #Fatal5 #NoExcuses #Slowdown."

Villagers in Cowling are campaigning for average speed cameras.
