They appeared to be doing random checks on vehicles, some just being checked on the road, but others being pulled into the car park.
I put my little innocent (it wasn't me ossifer) face on and they waved me through. :)

It was a speed trap, there was an officer with the radar gun further up the road. They only stopped those that were speeding so you must have been travelling below 33 whitey.

Surely it didn't need two patrol cars, one van and at least eight officers to man a speed trap?

When i went through there was quite a queue from Warsop and moving very slowly. Officers were walking down the queue, some drivers were just asked a couple of quick questions, others were told to go into the car park were a group of more police was waiting for them, for what i don't know. There didn't appear to be any other agencies there.
There also didn't appear to be any ANPR cameras about.
The policeman with the speed gun was only part of the operation and was "hiding" against the Mill House apparently checking cars coming round the corner from Cuckney Hill

Good, there should be a speed trap along there more often. I despair at the speed on the flashing signs sometimes... 48 mph the other day some plank was showing as they travelled into Warsop.

I heard about it Tuesday night.
Didn't put anything on here as it wouldn't have been the right thing to do.
He has a family, and they would be very upset.
From what I have been told, it appears to be suicide by shotgun

totally agree with you there,

This is the sort of thing that should be stamped out for good

This looks like a very serious accident, this must be the third serious accident on the Warsop Church to Cuckney stretch of the hill this year

Oh dear! Not again! I've been hearing the sirens for the past 15 minutes or so and wondered what it was.

Keep us posted on road closures.
