Third speed camera attacked
Vandals have set fire to a speed camera in a Derby suburb in the latest attack on the unpopular machines.

This is the third time that speed cameras have been attacked in the county in the past six months.

It is thought a tyre was put on top of the yellow box on Dale Road in Spondon and then it was set alight.

But the tyre fell to the ground before any damage was done to the 30,000 camera, which belongs to the Derbyshire Safety Camera Partnership.
