Police officers have been handing out penalty notices to motorists after complaints by residents in the Hipperholme area.

PC Emma Leatherland and PCSO Sarah Conderson attended Brookeville Avenue and George Street, which are restricted access roads for residents only, on Tuesday morning due to vehicles using the route as a cut through to avoid the traffic lights at Hipperholme crossroads.

Four drivers were issued with £50 fixed penalty notices by officers.
