The massacre goes on

Three women were hit by a Citroen Saxo which mounted the pavement on Foxhall Road in Ipswich, Suffolk, shortly after midnight.

The car hit the women and the wall so hard that bricks were hurled against her house leaving gouge marks on the brickwork. "It was just a horrendous scene. A woman was dead in her garden and another had been thrown next door. The car landed up a short distance down the road, but its engine was ripped out and lying on the other side of the road. Wreckage was strewn everywhere."

Dr Bright said she had recently written letters calling for a 20mph speed limit to be introduced to combat speeding drivers in Foxhall Road. She said: "I complained to the council several months ago about the speed that cars go down here. The road is empty and quiet at night and it is very easy to speed."
