Boy racers in the West Midlands will be jumping with joy as councils switch off the last 73 of the region's 305 speed cameras in an attempt to curb spending.

Currently, the cameras situated in some of the Midland's worst accident blackspots are still using costly wet film rather than a digital format, forcing local councils to re-think their anti-speeding strategy.
