Somerset, UK speed camera removed after being destroyed by fire.

Vigilantes set fire to a speed camera in the Somerset, England town of Rooksbridge at around 11:30pm on Sunday. The attack succeeded in destroying the device, which had been located on the side of the A38. Officials removed the charred remains yesterday.

Burnham police, eager not to lose an key location for issuing tickets, have diverted a mobile speed camera to the area. Vigilantes have attacked the camera several times in the past.
