Emergency services were called to a crash on Chartridge Lane in Chesham last night - one week after a resident installed DIY signs warning drivers to slow down.

Firefighters, police and an ambulance called to the scene after a car struck a brick wall. One fire engine and crew from Amersham attended. No-one was trapped.

One witness said on social media: "Bad crash up Chartridge Lane, cars (have) been racing up and down tonight, blue golf was unlucky, crashed through someone's front wall. "There's a time and a place to race your car. Book track time at a car show, don't race on the streets."

Last week, the Bucks Free Press reported that resident Bob Earwaker had installed the signs after becoming frustrated at the number of speeding drivers.

He said at the time: “I have been campaigning to try and stop cars and vans driving over 30mph along the Lane from Chesham town centre to Chartridge since at least January this year.

“The speeding is getting worse. When you travel from Chesham town to Chartridge there is not one 30mph sign until you get to our houses and these are signs I put up at my expense."

A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: "Thames Valley Police was called to reports that a car had collided with a wall in Chartridge Lane at around 9.15pm yesterday.

"Officers attended the scene. A woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

"No arrests were made."
