SPEED checks took place in a road where two people died in five days.

Police were out with speed guns in Buckle Street, near Honeybourne on Tuesday afternoon, just two weeks after the second fatal crash in five days.

A 21-year-old man died after a car crashed into a tree and burst into flames on Tuesday September 19 just days after a 16-year-old cyclist died from serious head injuries suffered on the road.

The speed limit along the road is 60 miles an hour.
