A team of campaigners have resorted to getting a 2 year old child to make a CCTV camera in the hope it’s more effective than the one Havering Conservative and Resident led Council have installed to stop Heavy Goods Vehicle trucks ruining the lives of residents in Wennington Village.

Earlier this year local MP Jon Cruddas and campaigners were delighted when the council introduced measures to stop HGVs causing havoc, destroying the carriageway, and damaging air quality.

However following installation, it turns out they are almost entirely ineffective in stopping HGVs driving through Wennington Village. The local Labour Team have therefore taken matters in their own hands and created a camera to show the Conservative and Resident Council where it should have been installed.

Simon Darvill whose 2 and a half year old daughter painted the camera said “Local Residents are perplexed why the Tories and Resident Association Council have wasted money on a ‘solution’ which solves nothing for local people, I thought my 2 1/2 year old daughter could do much better than Cllr Damien White! Does he even know where Wennington Village is?!”

Local resident Fay Hough who has been campaigning with Jon Cruddas MP on this for a long time said “How the council have got this so wrong has baffled residents, we are calling for the council to put right the situation by installing signage at the junction of Wennington Road and East Hall Lane, halting HGV access via the Village and redirecting to the A1306 entrance.”

Campaigner Mohammed Siddique said “Residents in Havering have been let down by their ‘independent’ councillors for years, this is yet another issue they have been silent on. The Tories can’t even install traffic calming measures let alone anything else in our local area, and if the local councillors won’t stand up for Wennington Village, we will.”

The Labour Action Team have pledged that if elected next year this issue will be a priority and they will work to resolve it, improving the quality of life for Wennington residents.
