Possible speed limit change

A change in the speed limit on the nation's motorways could be on the cards.

Some driving groups think there should be a change to the 70mph speed limit, saying it is outdated and needs to be increased to reflect the safety of new cars.

The Government has hinted that it could be set to trial a new maximum speed limit of 80mph with the M1 in our region as one of three motorways selected.
