Having been a former resident of Hadstock I am very familiar with this stretch of road (A1307).

Vehicle speeds are one issue but the other problem is drivers overtaking at speed and leaving it to the last minute to observe the single-lane carriageway in an effort to overtake just one more vehicle. Roads are not dangerous, just some of the people who use them are.

On a related matter I do object to the sub headline "The whole of Linton was gripped by fear when we heard the sirens".

Perhaps during the war this headline would have been appropriate!
