A grandfather implored council officers to take more action to reduce high-speeding cars along the borough’s roads.

Arthur Camfield, of Gresham Drive, Chadwell Heath, spoke of his fears for the safety of residents at yesterday’s Local Forum meeting at Barley Lane Primary School, Huxley Drive, Chadwell Heath.

Transportation, traffic and parking were high on the agenda.

“I have a five-and-a-half-year-old grandson, I’m afraid he wont get to the age of seven,” said Mr Camfield.

“They drive down so fast, over 40 miles per hour along Barley Lane and Grove Road.”

The meeting was chaired by Redbridge Council leader Cllr Jas Athwal, who was joined by Cllr Bert Jones (Goodmayes, Labour), director of place Caroline Bruce and Cllr Robin Turbefield (Bridge, Conservative).

Topics raised included Sadiq Khan’s opposition to development on Oakfield Playing Fields and King George Hospital closure proposals.
