WORK has already started to install average speed cameras on the Forty Foot Bank Road between Ramsey and Chatteris, a county council spokesman said yesterday (Tuesday).

After a meeting of the council's cabinet, which formally agreed the scheme, The Hunts Post was told that the paperwork to get the scheme under way had begun and the physical work would begin in April.

The decision came just two days short of a year from the day that a seven-year-old boy and his father drowned in the drain next to the road.

Jordan Hawes and his father, Dean, 27, died when their car left the road on December 21 last year.

Six weeks later, another three people drowned when a car carrying them to work at Rustler's factory, in Chatteris, left the road.
