A campaign group set up to fight the problem of dog poo has turned its attentions to speeding drivers.

Gomersal Matters launched its Stop the Plop campaign last week when children had to take off their shoes at nursery after standing in dog poo on the school run.

Now the group has started a second campaign called Psycho Drivers, in a bid to encourage drivers to slow down near schools in the village.

The group held a meeting on Wednesday to discuss a plan of action.

Member Sue Tillotson said: “We have positive responses with the council looking at the highways around Gomersal Primary.

“I want to promote responsible parking and also look at how we can get people to park and stride, for example parking five minutes away, not so close to school.

“We are also looking to put up posters to keep the Stop The Plop campaign going.”

Sue said the group had been set up for the community to discuss any issues in Gomersal.

She added: “Any volunteers or ideas will be greatly received and people can also join the Facebook group and page for Gomersal Matters to support both the campaigns.”
