Councillor for Long Melford John Nunn said: ”This is a sad situation and my thoughts go to the residents of the damaged property, I was pleased to have helped the residents affected by sourcing a tarpaulin from JRL Scaffolding to protect their property.
“Together with Long Melford parish council and the local Suffolk County councillor we have been trying to get speed reduction measures in Bull Lane for the last five years - sadly with no success so far.
“There are other factors involved which are currently being considered and I am contacting the council to see if off-street car parking can be provided in the gardens of people living in Bull Lane.”
