More than 2000 young people in Wales had their driving licences revoked for speeding last year.

That's according to figures released today by the vehicle licensing agency, the DVLA.

GoSafe, a charity which aims to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding, is today launching a campaign to educate young drivers on the importance of sticking to speed limits.

It places speed cameras in areas where people have been killed or seriously injured, or where communities have raised concerns over speeding.

There were more than 800 people killed or seriously injured on Welsh roads in 2013.
