A petition has been started for a reduced speed limit following a number of crashes on a road between Letchworth and Baldock.

Multiple incidents have been seen on Norton Road, including two on Thursday (January 19).


Firstly, at approximately 3.26pm, a crash took place outside the Three Horseshoes pub.

Two vehicles were involved, and no injuries were reported.

Secondly, a crash took place between a vehicle and a horse at around 8.53am.

Road closures were put in place whilst the emergency services dealt with the incident.

The horse was treated by a vet, before being returned to a nearby stable.

No further injuries were reported.

A petition on Change.org has now been created to reduce the current speed limit from 60mph. 

The petition states that users of North Herts Equestrian Centre must regularly lead their horses along 130 meters of the road in order to access their field.
