HUNDREDS of protestors against speeding measures in a village have made an official call for work to stop.
The No Hump campaign group have amassed over 400 signatures from villagers who don't want the scheme to go ahead.
Work is currently underway by Herts Highways in the village to create 11 speed humps.
But opponents say the original consultation with residents, which the parish council used to instigate the work, was flawed.

In an open letter to the parish council and Herts Highways, the group said: "The wording of their questionnaires, their presentation of the results, the fact that no expert survey advice was used in writing the questions, and that there was no independent validation of the results means the results have no credibility and cannot be relied upon.
"This is a formal request on behalf of all our supporters to delay installation of any more road humps until reasonable time has been given to retrieve survey results and comments, accident data, speed data, design data and alternatives, and time to process all of it."

A spokesman for Herts Highways said: "We haven't received the petition yet, but all petitions received are given full and proper consideration."
He added: "There were four windows of public consultation before this work was agreed."
Work is scheduled to finish by the end of May.
