Fourteen Vehicles Recorded Speeding In 20mph Zone On South Park (Near Lytham Hall Park Primary)

Fourteen vehicles have been recorded exceeding the 20 miles per hour speed limit on South Park by Fylde Police. The session undertaken by the Fylde Neighbourhood Police Team (see featured photograph) was carried out near Lytham Hall Park Primary School.  This local school recently hit the headlines when Mandie Gorst, the school’s beloved lollipop lady who had helped children and parents cross the road for six years, quit her job saying she no longer felt safe around impatient drivers who refused to slow down. She added that she had even been sworn and spat at – and almost mowed down by motorists who ignore her pleas to keep to the 20mph speed limit on the school run. She also added that some parents had shouted at her. To read Mandie’s full story go to:

On this occasion 14 vehicles have been recorded exceeding the 20-mph speed limit.
