Five drivers were caught and given tickets for driving at speeds of 50, 51, 53, 54 and 60mph.

A police post online said: “This month’s session, our multi-agency approach to reducing the speed of traffic and animal deaths across the Forest, was our busiest ever, with another 18 drivers given educational advice.”

It added: “Thanks as always to the majority of drivers who did stick to the speed limit – we really do appreciate it.”
