SPEEDING motorists have demolished a garden fence twice in a matter of weeks.

Surveying the wreckage in a pretty country garden, 79 year-old Agnes Smith called for a 30 mile per hour limit on the Henley Road which passes just yards from her front door.

She said, "It needs a 30 mile per hour limit, but they won't even put chevrons on the road to let drivers know the bend is coming."

The latest accident happened about 9pm yesterday (Tuesday) when a Ford Mondeo ploughed through a fence into the garden.
