Overton residents want lower speed limits

People in a village in North Wales are lobbying their local politicians to try and lower the speed limit in the town.

It's after a boy was killed in Overton near Wrexham last year.

Over sixty people there have written letters saying they would like to see a 40 miles an hour zone on the approach in and out of the town.

Community Councillors have been lobbying local AMs and MPs. Later this week Community Councilor Chairwomen Jacqueline  Maskall is meeting with AM Janet Ryder and Wrexham Council Leader Aled Roberts to discuss the plans for the speed limit to be changed.

Chairwomen Jacqueline  Maskall says:

'There's forty thousand vehicles a week that travel through the town, many of them HGVs, many of them young drivers. It's a very dangerous road and the speed limit has to be changed.'
