A survey analysed by professors at the University of the West of England has found that 70% of adults support an introduction of a 20 mile per hour speed limit on busy streets.

Although experts warn the speed limits will only become effective once they are properly enforced.

The main reasons for people supporting a change include road safety and child safety, as well as creating a more pleasant environment to live in.
