This is the true hell of village life for so many people across the UK … the scourge of 44 tonne HGVs using the wrong roads to deliver their goods.
This video was taken at 11am in the historic leather-working village of Woodseaves, Staffordshire. People in the village say there are at least 1,000 HGVs a day thundering down their narrow main street, a street where Oliver Cromwell set up his command post during the bloody battle of Hopton Heath in the 1600s.
Staffordshire County Council denies there is a problem with HGVs, claiming to have figures showing less than 400 a day.
However, villagers, who say it is difficult to sell their homes now – and one family has been forced to board up the front of their ancient cottage for safety – have gathered information which, they say, proves their plight and they have handed it to CWF to investigate.
Please tell CWF if you are suffering similar problems – together we can fight the scourge of HGVs on the wrong British roads.
This is what’s really happening to hundreds of small villages all over the UK – Staffordshire County Council say we do not have a problem, just a few hundred HGVs per day, but we have figures that prove it’s well over a thousand per day.
