Concerns are growing that drivers flouting speed limits in the Glen Road and Springhill Road areas near the high school could cause a serious accident.

Community councillor Eddie Smith said: “It’s getting really bad. Many drivers just seem to fly along and take no notice of the speed limits.

“Something needs to be done before somebody gets badly hurt.”
