Brighton and Hove's new residential 20mph zones

Brighton Council said 15,000 people took part in consultations about the 20mph zones

Speed limits in some residential areas of Brighton and Hove are being reduced in phase two of a scheme to limit speeds to 20mph in the city.

The areas affected range from Portslade in the west to Whitehawk in the east and Coldean in the north.

Some streets had been removed from the scheme, but were reinstated after a campaign by residents.

Brighton City Council said phase one in the city centre reduced traffic speed on 74% of the roads.

A council spokesman said: "Early monitoring from the first phase of speed limits introduced to the city centre in 2013 has shown a decrease in traffic speeds on 74% of roads.

"The number and severity of collisions and casualties have also fallen in in the central area."
