A Tickenham, UK speed camera is obliterated by an intense fire.

A Tickenham, UK speed camera was completely destroyed by fire early Monday. Vigilantes set fire to a gasoline-soaked Ford Fiesta directly under the ticketing machine, generating intense heat and flames that reportedly shot forty feet into the air.

The camera on Clevedon Road had previously been destroyed and damaged on several occasions. The Avon and Somerset Constabulary is investigating the latest incident.
