Third crackdown nets 120 drivers

More than 100 motorists have been caught breaking road laws in the third crackdown in a Cambridgeshire village in four weeks.

Police targeted the village of Histon near Cambridge setting up road-side check points for the third time.

More than 70 drivers were caught without a seatbelt and another 40 were using a mobile phone behind the wheel.

In total, 120 fines were handed out but police said they were disappointed drivers were still breaking the law.

Sgt Martin Monger said: "Some drivers believe they are above the law. It's despicable that so many of them were not wearing seat belts."
