UK: Four Speed Cameras Torched
Burning tires destroyed a set of four Surrey, UK speed cameras.

A set of four speed cameras near Banstead, Surrey, England were destroyed last week. Officials believe the same man used gasoline-filled tires to set the machines on fire. Damage is believed to be £120,000 (US $209,000).

The Sun quotes a police spokesman: "He must have quite some grudge against speed cameras."
