Villages in rural Somerset are being invited to apply to have a free portable speed indicator sign installed for two weeks.

Previously parish councils were charged £750 for the first year they took part in the Speed Indicator Device (SID) scheme, and then £350 annually.

The SID programme targets areas identified as having the worst records for accidents which involved injuries.

The county council has made £200,000 available to buy the signs.
