A SERVICEMAN has raised concerns about the number of cars speeding in a residential road in Princes Risborough, with some driving more than 60 in a 30mph limit.

The member of the armed forces from RAF Halton wrote a letter to Princes Risborough Town Council, which was read on Tuesday night.

The council, who do not name people who write letters in, say they have empathy for the resident who lives in Berryfield Road.

The letter said he has a "serious concern" for himself, his family and other members of the public with the number of cars breaking the law speeding.

He said more break it than stay within it, adding he regularly witnesses cars in excess of 60mph.

He said it will end up in a tragedy of some sort.

Cllr Alan Turner said he has a great deal of empathy with him and said it happens throughout the town, but referred the resident to the police as it outside the town council's remit.
