The lines on Church Street were introduced earlier this year by Northumberland County Council to help reduce parking congestion and make it easier for buses and emergency vehicles to pass.

However, concerns have subsequently been raised about speeding.

Parish council chairman Barbara Brook, speaking at Monday’s meeting, said: “Apparently when you put down any sort of traffic calming measures, whether you like it or not, it’s got to stay for at least a year.

“The council have told us that if we’re still unhappy after that period there would be no problem in taking them out.”
