Villagers living near Folkestone say traffic driving dangerously through Densole is putting lives at risk.

After one death and three serious incidents on the A260  in the last five years, locals say enough's enough.

  • Report by ITV News Meridian's Abigail Bracken:

Villagers say traffic on the A260 at Densole is getting worse and making it increasingly dangerous to cross.


It's scary when there's not the white lines to tell you that there's a good crossing.

  • Jenny Bervill, Densole resident

Residents say that traffic drives far too fast around the bend and they say that makes it incredibly dangerous to try and cross the road between the bus stop and the pub and the shop just beyond.

  • Bernard Gorham, Densole resident


Safety changes to our roads are made in areas most in need of improvement first, which have got the support of the whole community...we're happy to consider all requests.

Kent County Council spokesperson

Villagers say they need crossings built and a lower speed limit to stop anyone else from being hurt.
