I WOULD like to bring to you attention another issue becoming evident on the West Pennine moors. In addition to the fly tipping, littering, dog fouling and the dumping of spent cannabis plants can now be added dangerous driving.

The fences and dry stone walls on George's Lane to the Sportsman's Cottage now have four areas of impact damage caused by vehicles leaving the road. It is not unreasonable to assume this damage was caused by excessive speed. This road is extensively used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders and it is surely just a matter of time before a serious accident occurs.

This is just another example of this wild and beautiful area being abused by unthinking and uncaring individuals. Let us all hope these activities can be curtailed before the area is turned into an eye sore and someone is seriously injured.
