Residents in Huthwaite are celebrating the success of a long-fought campaign to get weight restrictions imposed along a busy stretch of road.

Nottinghamshire County Council has recently installed road signs warning HGV drivers that there is now a 7.5 tonne weight limit in force on Chesterfield Road .

Residents had been campaigning for years to get the restriction imposed because of safety concerns and due to problems caused by large lorries travelling along the road at all times of the day and night.
