Details of an FOI request made by Free Radio showed that almost 1,000 drivers have been caught doing the over the 40mph speed limit on a stretch of road where 6 people lost their lives in a crash in 2017.

Last year, Preet Kaur Gill MP handed in a petition signed by 28,000 people with Tony Worth, the brother-in-law of Lucy David, one of the Belgrave Middleway crash victims, urging Birmingham City Council to install average speed cameras.

In an interview with Free Radio, Preet said:

"These figures show that there was a real need for this camera to be installed. It is shocking that people still haven't learnt their lesson and don't want to change their behaviour even though there was a huge loss of life in the horrific incident on that stretch of road. These figures prove what we've all known and we're all been worried about for some time."
