Years of campaigning to stop speeding on a Colne “rat run” has paid off for Colne residents and councillors.

After a lengthy battle, Lancashire County Council has now allocated more than £70,000 for a traffic calming scheme in Birtwistle Avenue and Harrison Drive.

The area has sparked complaints since around 2010, with an action group being formed last summer after pensioner Eric Judson was knocked down and seriously injured on the route.
