Fear over fast-moving police cars in Tewkesbury
PEOPLE living close to Tewkesbury Police Station could be at risk from fast-moving patrol cars.
That was the fear expressed by town councillor John Badham at a meeting of his authority.
The Abbey Terrace resident told Police Community Support Officer Karl Simpson that the number of police cars travelling quickly along Gloucester Road had increased dramatically in the last few months.
He wondered if it was due to the police having moved their station to the council offices site from Barton Street last summer.

He added: "It could be dangerous for people standing by the abbey. It's an accident waiting to happen."
The PCSO said any police cars travelling quickly in the area would be doing so for a valid reason but he said he would raise the issue with his inspector.
