Oxfordshire speed cameras set to return in April

The speed cameras in Oxfordshire could be reinstated as early as April next year after plans emerged that would see Thames Valley Police shoulder the cost of paying for them.

Safety campaigner Brake claims that speeding has risen by as much as 400 percent since all 72 of the county's fixed cameras and 89 mobile units were switched off on 1 August after £600,000 was axed from the road safety budget.
