You can now check how many speeding drivers have been caught by Essex Police where you live.

The online map shows how many offenders were pulled over and warned about their driving, how many were fined and how many ended up in court.

The speed checks were carried in areas where people have raised concerns about the problem.

Adam Pipe from Essex Police says "Speed limits are there as maximum speeds. You should drive according to conditions of the road and the weather. This is about taking responsibility, respecting the road and understanding the effect speeding has on communities up and down the county."
