Haverhill Police and schoolchildren confronted speeding drivers to ask them challenging questions about why they were breaking the limit.

Coupals Primary School teamed up with PCSO Mark Isaac and colleagues Pc Will Wright and Sgt Gary Miller on Friday (March 7), with those caught speeding on Wratting Road ordered to pull over and then choose between getting three points and a fine, going on a speed awareness course or facing the youngsters.

‘Why are you putting our lives at risk?’ and ‘How would you feel if a speeding driver hit your children?’ were among the questions the pupils put to the seven drivers that were stopped.

“They all chose to speak with the children, however a few of them were left to regret it,” said PCSO Isaac.

“Their posture quickly became slumped and were hanging their heads in shame.”
