IN Ramsey Road, Ramsey Forty Foot, another family has had six cars crash into their garden in 10 years.

This month, there were two crashes in a week. The first was on Sunday, August 12 at 9.30pm when a Peugeot destroyed fences of two houses. The driver admitted drink driving. In the second crash, on Thursday, August 16 at 10pm, a Vauxhall Corsa crashed into the garden.

The home of Paula and Robert Markland is at 55 Ramsey Road, close to the corner of the Forty Foot Drain Road, where in winter 2004-5, five people died in six weeks.

Mrs Markland, 36, said: "The crashes are usually in July or August. They are lads going too fast and they miss the corner.

"My son is the most affected. He has had to have counselling. He is 13 but when we moved here, he was three. His bedroom was at the front of the house but he refused to sleep there."
