Local news for Kelsall, Tarvin, Ashton, Mouldsworth

  • Road safety — I have been conducting speed enforcement in Mouldsworth, Ashton Hayes, Kelsall, Oscroft and Duddon paying particular attention to the 30mph areas and locations reported by residents as being of concern. I am pleased to report in the majority of these locations most motorists were travelling within the speed limits however a total of 5 were caught speeding. Please drive safely particularly and within the speed limit in the 30mph areas

I had received from a concerned Kelsall resident a report of buses speeding through Kelsall. I used our speed camera and in the locations reported no offences were detected. I later engaged with the bus drivers to make them aware of the report received and to advise them I would be continuing to monitor the location. To date I have not received any further complaints from residents regarding this issue

We have attended a number of road traffic collisions of varying severity over the last month in the Mouldsworth and Tarvin areas. Some of the key factors being due to the driver not paying attention to the icy road conditions and adjusting road speed accordingly and not defrosting / demisting windows properly prior to driving. It is bad enough to be involved in a collision but somewhat more impactive to be prosecuted for driving without due care and attention.
A motorcycle was seized from its rider In Mouldsworth for no insurance and no Mot.

  • Burglary — On 02/12/14 a resident of Brookside, Ashton Hayes, believes they may have had an attempt burglary at their home. Despite being in their lounge in the evening with curtains open / lights on and watching TV their front door handle was tried by unknown persons. I was on patrol nearby in the village at the time of the call and the area was promptly searched with no trace of any suspects. Of note the property has 2 new vehicles on the drive so I suspect the offender may have been trying the front door for stealing vehicle keys. Please be mindful of this type of crime as most people have their car keys attached to house keys and leave them near to the front / rear door. Where possible put your car keys in a safe place out of reach and out of sight.
