Speed camera call for fatal road

Speed cameras were previously sought for the stretch of road
An MP is calling for action after two more deaths on a notorious stretch of road in Norfolk.

A motorcyclist and a car driver died in separate accidents on the A149 over the weekend.

This brings the total number of deaths on the road to seven this year, with the majority happening on the eastern stretch between Catfield and Stalham.

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb, who wanted speed cameras installed last year, has renewed his appeal.

"I know not everyone agrees with them, but the evidence shows they can reduce fatalities," he said.

"We were told that it didn't meet the criteria, and now we've had another fatality.

"I would again urge the authorities to look at whether its possible to introduce speed cameras here."

The most recent victim, a motorcyclist who died in a collision with a VW people carrier near Potter Heigham on Saturday, has been named as 24-year-old Michael Hodds from Rollesby.
