A POLICEMAN is urging motorists to drive carefully in a village after nine people were caught speeding in one hour.
The offences occurred on Thursday when officers from Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team were in Brookmans Park conducting Laser Speed Enforcement.
Pc Ross Freeman, who covers Brookmans Park and Little Heath, was part of the team and pleaded with drivers to "watch their speed and drive safely".
He said: "We were there in the village for just over one hour in which time we recorded nine separate offences of speeding within a 30mph zone.

"Those ticketed by ourselves were recorded doing speeds ranging up to 49mph.
"Needless to say it is disappointing to record this many speeders in such a short period of time."
