UK: Suffolk Speed Camera Disappears
A Suffolk, UK speed camera on the A14 was knocked over and its inner workings taken.

A speed camera on the A14 in Suffolk, UK was ripped out of the ground and had its inner workings carefully removed. The incident left an empty camera housing and pole alongside a mess of wiring exposed at the concrete base where the device once stood ticketing passersby.

"The camera has been attacked," Michelle Finnerty, spokesman for Suffolk SafeCam told the East Anglian Daily Times. "It's been completely ripped out of the ground and investigations are ongoing at the moment. The concrete bit it was set in is out as well, someone has gone to a great deal of trouble."
