SEVERAL motorists have been caught driving well over the speed limit during a crackdown in Keighley.

Operation Shipdon has seen West Yorkshire Police and partners targeting speeding and anti-social driving across the town.

One driver was clocked doing 108mph in a 70mph zone on the A650 Aire Valley trunk road at Marley.

Concerns have been voiced for some time about speeding and anti-social driving on that section of dual carriageway.

Keighley East district councillors Caroline Firth, Lisa Robinson and Malcolm Slater called for action last year.

Now, speed cameras are to be installed and a 50mph limit introduced between the Crossflatts and Marley roundabouts, as well as along the whole of Sir Fred Hoyle Way, the Bingley by-pass.

Other notable speeding incidents recorded by Operation Shipdon during the past week have included a motorist driving at 95mph on the A629 between Keighley and Silsden, where the limit is 70mph; a driver doing 65mph on a 30mph stretch of Long Lee Lane, and a motorist who reached 60mph in a 40mph zone on Bradford Road, Riddlesden.

West Yorkshire Police said its deployments focused on late-evening and early-hours periods, and that further tickets had been issued at "other locations of community concern".
