RESIDENTS fear it is only a matter of time before there is a bad traffic accident on an ‘absolute nightmare’ of a rat run in Leominster.

Terry Collier, a member of the public speaking at Leominster Town Council last week, said the traffic situation on Westfield Walk was terrible at peak times and warned it could get worse with extra housing.

He said: “Westfield Walk is an absolute nightmare of a rat run. Every morning, every evening.

“There’s honking horns, shouting, screaming because people won’t give way. It is not going to get any better and I am just waiting for the accident to happen. When it does, it will be a big one.

“There’s a lot of old people living up there and crossing the road is a nightmare.”
