Councillor Paul Singh has called for immediate action to improve road safety on Goldthorn Hill after a residential wall was destroyed for the fifth time.

Resident Devi Kelsi welcomed the support after being forced to repair her garden wall earlier this year, marking the fifth time that she has had to pay to have it rebuilt.

She said: "This has happened consistently, it's happened five times now, and it's usually once every two or three years.

"This last one was the worst I have seen, it was a bit of a wake-up call. It happened at around 7.30am, I heard a big crash and it just shook me out of bed. I went down to have a look and there was a car in my tree."
